About the Author
Charlie Winger is a prolific mountaineer with a passion for climbing lists of peaks: the 200 highest mountains in Colorado, the 50 state highpoints, over 100 USGS-named peaks in Death Valley, the 57 ultra-prominence peaks in the lower US, the highest mountains in North and South America, Europe, Africa, and Australia, and many more lists few people understand.
Diane takes a more relaxed approach to hiking and rock climbing, and places a high priority on hiking on trails and hiking to places that are scenic. She is a member of the unofficial "49ers Club," having reached the top of 49 state highpoints. Her motto: "Just say no to Denali."
Charlie and Diane live in Colorado and are co-authors of several guidebooks on outdoor recreation. They also collaborated on Charlie's inspiring autobiography, Two Shadows.
Charlie makes killer Belgian waffles, numerous sick jokes, and enjoys telling climbing stories almost as much as he loves actually getting "out there." Diane is passionate about her involvement with the service organization Altrusa, enjoys laughing at Charlie's jokes, and is a self-described computer geek.

While the book isn't a detailed hiking guide, it does contain information that is absolutely necessary to reach certain highpoints, especially those on private property. Additionally, the book contains a list of local highlights and interesting sites to see.
P.S. Our favorite highpoint, so far, is Kansas' Mount Sunflower!
All in all, very helpful, though!
