Mitchell “Mitch” Williams

“The war gave us Jeeps, uranium prospecting gave us roads.” After flying 89 combat missions in the Pacific during World War II, the son of Moab’s first doctor returned home to carve out a living and raise his family. Working multiple jobs sustained the Williams for a while, but Mitch’s love of the desert and memories of his childhood adventures on the river fueled an interest in sharing them with the traveling public. Soon Tag-A-Long Tours was a thriving business, entertaining tourists from all over the world in Jeeps and on rafts on the Colorado, helping to transform the tourism business into the expedition business.
