About the Author
They've trekked through much of the world's vertical topography, including Nepalese Himalaya, Patagonian Andes, and New Zealand Alps. In Europe, they've hiked the Scottish Highlands, Spain s Costa Blanca and Els Ports mountains, Mallorca's Serra de Tramuntana, the Alpes Maritimes, the French, Swiss, and Italian Alps, the French and Spanish Pyrenees, and Italy's Dolomiti. In North America, they've explored the B.C. Coast, Selkirk and Purcell ranges, Montana's Beartooth Wilderness, Wyoming's Grand Tetons, the Colorado Rockies, the California Sierra, and Arizona's Superstition Wilderness and Grand Canyon.
Visit Kathy and Craig's website: hikingcamping.com. You ll find their blog posts are often mini-guidebooks, and their photo gallery is constantly growing.
In 1989, they moved from the U.S. to Canada, so they could live near the range that inspired the first of their refreshingly unconventional books: Don't Waste Your Time in the Canadian Rockies, The Opinionated Hiking Guide. Its popularity encouraged them to abandon their careers Kathy as an ESL teacher, Craig as an ad-agency creative director and start their own guidebook publishing company: hikingcamping.com.
Kathy and Craig live in Canmore, Alberta, 15 minutes' drive from Banff town. Their desire to hike, however, keeps them travelling constantly. They now migrate annually to southern Utah, where they wrote Hiking From Here To Wow: Utah Canyon Country.

I bought this book with the intention of doing more day hiking when returning to Jasper again this year. I wish I had this book on my last trip.
In "Done in a Day Jasper: The 10 Premier Hikes" you'll find a passionately written, easily portable book containing just the right amount of details to make your Jasper National Park day hiking experience one of a kind. The authors have written several books on hiking and really know their stuff.
* Detailed info about each hike along with advice from authors who are expert hikers
* Good introduction to Jasper National park and hiking in general
* Small, portable size
* Inspirational pictures from Jasper hikes
* Worth the price
* The publishing company, run by the authors, is a member of "1% for the Planet", a business that donates 1% of their sales to the natural environment. I like that.
This book will get you to the views of a lifetime in Jasper National Park.
During a recent two week hiking vacation in Banff and Jasper, I carried "Done in a Day Jasper" and "Done in a Day Banff." Both books helped me experience some of the high points of my hiking career.
