Caroline Bach Wood


Don’t let her southern accent fool you: Caroline, who lives 70 miles from the border of Yellowstone National Park, 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. The American West has long been Caroline’s favorite playground. 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. She knows many of the local guides personally, has tested out the best adventure outfitters (from rafting and snowmobiling to horseback riding and fly fishing), and keeps the managers of her favorite lodges on their toes with her frequent visits. Her local connections mean that she can often find space on sold-out tours or nab room upgrades. Caroline is equally well versed in the guest ranches and private home rentals of the American West—from the ruggedly authentic to sumptuous mountain retreats.
