Relaxed Nature Tours

See below the scheduled upcoming tours.


9/29/2024 - 10/7/2024 | David Bradford/Andrea Ezerins

Four Participants Only (THIS TOUR IS NOW FULL)

We plan on visiting Arches NP, Bryce NP, and Zion NP with several stops along the way. Hopefully some of the summer crowds will be gone in October and temperatures will have cooled off. Bryce might even be a little chilly at night.

Price to be determined and dates flexible until reservations can be made at the lodges.

Haven’t seen Mt. Rushmore yet or want to revisit this national treasure nestled in the Black Hills of South Dakota? Then this is the relaxed nature tour for you. The plan is to fly into Rapid City, SD and spend four nights in Keystone, SD. While in Keystone, we plan to visit Mt. Rushmore National Memorial, Crazy Horse Memorial, Custer State Park, Badlands NP, and Mammoth Excavation Site. We might also tour a cave and visit a museum. Since this is a relaxed nature tour, we will not need to be up too early and hope to have some down time to relax a bit. After all, shouldn’t one be able to relax a little while on holiday? However, in 2022 we did not have a lot of down time, but we sure covered a lot of ground and saw a lot of fantastic sights.


The 2022 tour visited all the above major attractions plus we saw buffalo, pronghorn, coyote, prairie dog, mammoth bones, a ghost town, the tourist town of Keystone, and the vast expanse of the great outdoors in southwestern South Dakota. Of course, we spent time looking for birds, though the end of September was not a very birdy time of year. Therefore, I have moved the tour forward by three weeks, before many birds have migrated south. Please visit my website for a list of species seen and the written summary.


Cost of the tour per person going double occupancy is $1900. For single occupancy add $550. A deposit of $500 holds your spot. We are staying right in Keystone where hotels are very expensive, but close to the action.


Deposit checks can be mailed to David Bradford 18046 Green Hazel Dr. Houston, TX. 77084. Call 281 744 6486 to leave a message or text and I will return your call.
