About Us

G3 Adventures was started as Georgia Girl Guides in 2011. We are an adventure guiding service in the Northwest Georgia Mountains and currently operate out of Cloudland Canyon State Park on Lookout Mountain. Our goal is to share our love of nature with you. We hope that you leave with a new appreciation for the natural world above and below ground.

G3 began as a simple idea by two women shared over a cup of coffee. What started as an idea has become a thriving business that continues to grow every year. We are constantly adding new tours, new adventures, and new experiences, so we encourage you to come back and experience our motto, No Destination, Just Exploration!

Christine RoseCo-Founder and Current Owner
Christine co-founded the business after seeing the opportunity for G3 as a Seasonal Naturalist at Cloudland Canyon State Park. With over 15 years of experience in the Environmental Education field, Christine has worked for Nature Centers, Parks, and Walt Disney World as an educator. She has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Environmental Science from The University of North Carolina at Asheville and a Masters of Science Degree in Ecological Teaching and Learning from The Audubon Expedition Institute/Lesley University. Growing up in New Hampshire gave her an enormous love for mountains and outdoor recreation that has continued to be a part of her life in the mountains of North Georgia.

Amy Gonzalez, Co-Founder
Amy co-founded the business after working at Cloudland Canyon State Park for 10 years. A long time resident of Lookout Mountain, she worked her way up through the park and became a member of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources Search and Rescue Team. Amy has left the business after many years to start a family and we look forward to the day she lets us take her little one caving.

Jerry Wallace, Adventure Leader
Jerry was our first “Guy Guide”, although he refers to himself as the “Geezer Guide.” A long-time caver, and Fellow of the National Speleological Society, he is a wealth of experience and knowledge and has been working in the cave guiding business for over 17 years. When he is not underground, you can often find Jerry playing his didgeridoo on the streets of Chattanooga or showcasing his artwork in the local community.

Peyton Costa, Adventure Guide
Peyton is a current student at Sewanne: The University of the South. If you go on one of her tours, you will know why she was awarded “Best Laugh” in school. She is currently studying abroad, so while we won’t see her on any tours soon, she’ll be back to show you her amazing caving skills next summer.

Julia Yearout, Adventure Guide
Julia is a "caver-kid",one whose parents are cavers, so she grew up going underground before most of use ever knew there were caves in Georgia. She is a senior at LaFayette High school, is active in 4-H, and is the Drum Major in the band. She is planning on attending college to get her Bachelors of Science degree in Biological Science and her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine. We will be devastated when she leaves.

Rachel HeadAdventure Leader
Rachel is a graduate of The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science. She enjoys being outdoors, helping protect our state resources through education. She also enjoys traveling and has been to Australia and Croatia, a long way away from her native Tennessee.

Jake Melton, Adventure Guide

Jake began his caving career in the depths of Pettyjohn’s Cave in Walker County, Georgia. Teaching himself and friends how to cave safely became a job when he started work with G3. He is a current student at Chattanooga State College and plans on majoring in Environmental Science. When not working or studying, you can expect to run into Jake on the trail while he is backpacking.
