Bob Clark

I’ve been fascinated by travel ever since I was sent to Holland by the US Air Force some 40 years ago. Seeing other countries gave me an appreciation of the fascinating locations that can be found around the world. In an attempt to share this passion with others, I was fortunate enough to find employment as an Archers Tour Director some 15 years ago.

My Interests

When I am not sharing the Western USA with my Archers guests, I try combine my own travel with time to play a little golf, do a bit of fly fishing for trout and salmon, and take landscape and travel photographs. I’ve played the Old Course at St Andrews, caught brown trout in Alaska and New Zealand, and shot photos from Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon to the Scottish Highlands and the wilds of the Galapagos Islands.

Holiday Advice

Carry less than you think you’ll need, but don’t forget the user’s manual for that new digital camera you bought for the holiday! When you get home after your holiday, make a list of all the things you brought and didn’t use or need, as well as the things you didn’t bring and wish you had. Then, next time refer to the list while your do your packing.

Favourite Tours

The Native Southwest and Rocky Mountains tour takes in some of the most well-known features of the American Southwest such as the grandeur of the Grand Canyon and the historic ambiance of 400-year-old Santa Fe. It also includes Taos Pueblo, White Sands and Tombstone – places that many people have heard of but that are not on the usual tour itineraries.

Highlights of Canyolands 17 May 2013

We left Page Arizona this morning, headed for Utah and Bryce Canyon National Park. The day was clear, but cold and windy. We spotted several small bands of pronghorn antelope – wild, small, graceful and fast animals that can run at 50 miles an hour in short bursts.

After driving through the Grand Staircase – Escalante National Monument we made a short stop at Kanab at a gift shop where Butch Cassidy’s saddle is on display.

We arrived at Bryce Canyon at lunchtime, and then went into the park for our first glimpse of the strange spires and hoodoos that make up the park’s scenic wonders. From Bryce Point we could clearly see Navajo Mountain, 82 miles away.

We ended the day with a walk “from sunset to sunrise”! Sunset Point to Sunrise Point, which is – watching the ever-changing shapes of the hoodoos from along the canyon rim.
Tomorrow, we travel to Zion National Park, where we will view the 1500-foot cliffs from the valley floor.

Highlights of Route 66 17 May 2013

We arrived in Los Angeles this afternoon after following historic Route 66 for the last two weeks. We started in Chicago, went to St Louis, Oklahoma City, Amarillo, Albuquerque, and Flagstaff on our way to Los Angeles. WE took detours to Branson, the Grand Canyon and Las Vegas.

The highlight of the trip for many guests was meeting Angel Delgadillo "The Angel of Route 66" in the barbershop he has run in the little town of Seligman, Arizona, since 1951.

Angel is almost single-handedly responsible for keeping the memory of Route 66 alive after the highway was de-commissioned in 1984.
