Caroline Bach Wood

TRUSTED TRAVEL EXPERT The American West

Caroline lives 70 miles from the border of Yellowstone National Park and spent nearly every summer of her childhood next door to Old Faithful, where her father was (and still is) a naturalist for the Park Service. Her meticulously prepared itineraries include driving directions, restaurant recommendations, hiking suggestions, and more, all intended to keep you off the beaten track—inside and outside the U.S. national parks—and lead you to the region’s best-kept secrets, from Montana to Arizona and everywhere in between. She knows slot canyons in Utah that are empty even in high season, the best Navajo guides in Monument Valley, and which rooms at the Old Faithful Inn will afford you a view of the geyser from bed. Caroline procures the services of top-notch private guides from Glacier National Park to the Grand Canyon when they’ll add to the experience, and send you off on your own when they won’t. She has tested the best adventure outfitters (from rafting and snowmobiling to horseback riding and fly fishing) and keeps the managers of her favorite lodges and dude ranches on their toes with her frequent visits.
