About the Author
CRAIG ROMANO was raised in New Hampshire where he fell in love with the natural world. He has traveled extensively, from Alaska to Argentina and Sicily to South Korea, seeking wild and beautiful places. He ranks Washington State, his home since 1989, among the most beautiful places in the world and he has thoroughly hiked it from Cape Flattery to Puffer Butte, Cape Disappointment to the Salmo-Priest. But he still misses the East Coast, especially when it comes to getting a decent Italian meal. Craig holds a BA in history, a master's degree in education, and an AA in Forestry. An avid hiker, runner, kayaker, and cyclist, Craig has written about his passions for many publications, including Canoe and Kayak, Northwest Runner, AMC Outdoors, Backpacker and The North Columbia Monthly. Trails editor for Outdoors Northwest, he is also the author of Best Hikes with Dogs: Inland Northwest, Day Hiking Olympic Peninsula, and Columbia Highlands: Exploring Washington's Last Frontier, all published by The Mountaineers Books. He lives in Skagit County, Washington, close to the North Cascades and San Juan Islands.
