Cropper focuses on awe-inspiring trips through the natural wonders of the Southwest and the Rocky Mountains, whether booking helicopter rides over the Grand Canyon, sunset tours in the Navajo Nation with an Indigenous guide, and hiking trips through Zion National Park.

"We’ve seen a big increase in demand for ranch stays among family and multi-generational groups," she says. "One of my favorite Ranch stays is White Stallion Ranch in Arizona. The property houses one of the largest private herds of horses in the state and can accommodate riders of all levels. While on the ranch guests can enjoy daily trail rides through the cacti-studded desert, learn to herd the resident cattle, and visit with a variety of rescued wildlife."

As for cities attracting attention this year, the quaint town of Whitefish, with its close proximity to Glacier National Park, makes an interesting and convenient hub. Similarly, Sedona, Arizona is a superb "jumping off spot" for many Southwest bucket-list destinations such as the Grand Canyon and Lake Powell.

"I worked with Mary to plan an out west adventure with my mom for her 70th birthday celebration after our other travel plans were impacted by covid. After my first conversation with Mary I knew I was in good hands, she listened to what I was looking for in terms of activities, accommodations, budget, travel logistics and dining experiences and created an itinerary that exceeded my expectations. She kept me informed of travel alerts that were ever-changing with covid rules and seamlessly adjusted our trip as circumstances presented challenges. She crafted an ambitious trip with several moving parts and while weather and covid created some difficulties, Mary was ahead of it all and made sure we had what we needed to make our trip something I will always treasure. What was so apparent was her knowledge of the areas we would visit and sharing her personal experiences, she was true professional and I felt confident throughout the entire process." - Joanna C
