Backpacking Wyoming
Douglas Lorain


    Wyoming boasts countless outstanding backcountry destinations: trout-filled mountain lakes so scenic they leave you breathless; geologic wonders of a number and variety literally unequalled anywhere else on the planet; spectacular canyons dizzyingly deep and amazingly colorful; and more abundant wildlife than anywhere else in the Lower 48. While some of these attractions are world famous -- Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks and the Wind River Range -- many others are virtually unknown even to the savviest locals.

    Nationally award-winning guidebook author Douglas Lorain details both the famous and the hidden treasures in his picks of the Cowboy State’s 28 most enjoyable and beautiful backpack trips in Backpacking Wyoming. Distilled from thousands of trail miles and lasting from three days to almost two weeks, these carefully chosen itineraries offer the hiker mountain scenery, magnificent wildlife, colorful geologic marvels, and reasonable daily mileage goals. This in-depth guide reveals all the best trips in and around Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, the Beartooth and Bighorn Mountains, the Absaroka and Snowy Ranges, the Wind River Range, and, for solitude lovers, such little-known treasures as the Wyoming, Gros Ventre, Bear Lodge, and Salt River Mountains.

    A detailed trail map and photographs accompany each trip. Each of the trips rates scenery, solitude, and difficulty; specifies mileage, elevation gain, days on the trail, and shuttle distance; and notes special attractions, required permits, and challenges. It's all the information that novice and experienced backpackers alike will need to access the Wyoming backcountry and experience a trip of a lifetime.

Best Summit Hikes in Colorado, 2ed.
James Dziezynski


An Opinionated Guide to 50+ Ascents of Classic and Little-Known Peaks from 8,144 to 14,433 feet.

Colorado has 53 14ers, more than 600 13ers, and hundreds of other peaks that can be reached without special equipment or expertise. Numerous guides dryly catalog these trails, but Best Summit Hikes in Colorado stands out from them all. Author James Dziezynski has meticulously selected 80+ of the state’s absolute best peaks in more than 50 superlative hikes, and his opinionated narrative brings each route to life. Each summit is included because of a notable feature—whether it’s the site of a ghost mine or airplane wreckage, has thundering waterfalls or colorful floral meadows, is the best summit for spotting wildlife or bringing out-of-town friends, or is very accessible.

Some peaks offer unique opportunities, such as a trailhead accessible only via a steam-powered railroad. Several summits are described in no other publication. Covering all Colorado’s major mountain ranges, including the well-known Sangre De Cristo, Gore, Sawatch, Indian Peaks, and Maroon Bell wilderness areas to the lesser-known Grenadiers, Medicine Bow, and Outer San Juan peaks, this distinctive guide makes it easy to select exactly the right hike for the right day, the right mood, and the right companions.
