Reefs to Rockies 2014 – The Year in 12 Photos

Every year, we visit new places and revisit destinations in search of unforgettable experiences to offer Reefs to Rockies’ travelers. In addition to scouting trips, R2R co-founder Sheridan Samano has the opportunity to lead a variety of guided group trips in the US and abroad.
