From the Smokey Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and now to the Superstition Mountains, Flapjack has always had a bond with the great outdoors. But the legendary Superstition Mountains, Apache Trail and Four Peaks Wilderness have captured and held Flapjack’s full attention. Step back into history as Flapjack weaves the trails with the tales of the days of old. A picture is worth a thousand words – being there becomes priceless on one of his tours.
Since Smokey retired in 2008 from Portland, OR he's enjoyed educating and entertaining tourists at places like Crazy Horse Memorial in Custer, SD and at Ruby’s Inn (outside Bryce Canyon, Ut). Now Smokey enjoys his winters in Apache Junction leading tours at Apache Trail Tours. His goal is to have tourists leave tours knowing and understanding much more of an area than when they arrived.
Fast Eddie spent most of his life a horseback from rodeos to roping. Today he still team ropes and rides his horse in the desert. He loves to educate and entertain and has lots of experience: from operating a guest ranch in Colorado to the Sonoran Desert trail riding business he and his wife owned for many years. Join him on a tour for that special cowboy flavor he brings to every tour.
Lobo has spent years doing tours from the Arctic Circle to the Sonoran Desert and everywhere in between. As a wildlife photographer he has photographed creatures from grizzlies and wolves (‘lobos’) in the far north, to the rattlesnakes in his Superstition Mountain foothill’s backyard.

With his knowledge of the local desert birds, and appreciation of the Apache Trail territory, a great time will be had by all.
