Yellowstone/Tetons Guide Lincoln BakerBack to Guide Pages >>
Guide: Lincoln Baker
Short Bio: Lincoln spent most of his youth in and around the Northeast with the majority of time in Marblehead, Massachusetts. By the age of six, he was already out learning how to sail his own boat and racing against the other kids in town. Growing up on the ocean and near the mountains lead to a huge fascination and love for the outdoors. Lincoln has made it his mission to experience life in many different locations. From touring New Zealand and Australia, to running a hostel in Costa Rica, and biking from Hood River, Oregon to Mexico, he tends to find himself chasing the "buzz" of a new experience. Some of Lincoln's goals include biking around Australia, sailing around the world, and learning to fly a helicopter. He loves to guide as it combines two if his passions: people and the outdoors.
