Giving Thanks!

Medford, OR. During this Thanksgiving week, Team West has many things to be thankful for. We have our health, a life filled with adventure, and a supportive network of family, friends and colleagues.

Totally Tetons

With a backdrop as iconic as the Grand Tetons, the importance of practicing and spreading the Seven Principles of Leave No Trace easily comes to the forefront.
