He also writes for several Colorado–based business and entertainment periodicals, makes a mean chicken chile, and takes as many weekend treks into the Rockies as possible.
A California native, Shane Christensen has written travel guides throughout the American Southwest, as well as books covering destinations in Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean.

Top customer reviews
The value of this book is that it refers to an abundance of resources that the novice and/or experienced traveller can utilize. My favorite feature? Thumbnail synopses of the hiking trails - when to go, how to get the most out of it, which ones to tackle if you have only a short time, etc.
If you intend to EVER go to a Western US National Park, do yourself a favor and get this book!
