Hi!  My name is Karen Barkley and I have led student and adult tours for the past 9 years!  I have a very high energy level and people often ask me if I am always this happy and excited about doing a tour!  The answer is a resounding "Yes"!  I love being around folks and sharing my native sate of Colorado and many other places around the US and Europe.  While doing my Colorado tours, I use many hats to portray characters of history.  I do Soapy Smith the card shark, and Mattie Silks and Kate Fulton, ladies of the early West, and Molly Brown.  While doing Rocky Mountain National Park, I bring to life many of the early characters, and tell about the animals and geography in very interesting and upbeat ways.

Love to have your groups join me on Tour!
