Shawn Turner is a Floridian who loved taking friends and family out to enjoy the wild lands.
He served in the military as a helicopter mechanic, and during this time met his incredible wife Christiane. Shawn has traveled the world, with some favorites being Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Americas. He speaks fluent German.
Shawn moved with his family to Utah roughly 20 years ago, and his love for the outdoors followed him here. Kanab proved to be the perfect community for he and Christiane to settle down, raise their two sons, and enjoy life.
He is quite the rock hound and as such, is an amazing source for information on geology. A bit of a thrill seeker: he loves to chase flash floods and video tape them. Shawn also has an affinity for wildlife and is a bird watcher. He's an avid adventurer in all of the incredible areas our tours cover, with a special place in his heart for Zion National Park.
And it is We who are the lucky ones, to have Shawn here as a member of the team at American West Scenic Adventures. He takes excellent care of our clients so that they can create memories to take with them for a lifetime.
