It’s official: I’ve released another book about day hiking!  This time it’s to Wyoming – mountains and rivers, lakes and geysers!

It’s by far the longest book I’ve written to date – there’s almost 50 trails featured, let alone suggestions for more hiking (which adds up to more than 175 trail options) – but since I love Wyoming and all its variety, I suppose that was to be expected.

About half the book covers Yellowstone (geyser basins, waterfalls, etc.) and Grand Teton (mountains and lakes) National Parks.  This includes an extensive section on the western “back” side of the Tetons in the Jedediah Smith Wilderness.  A quarter to third of the rest of the book covers day hikes in the Wind River Range, with the remainder exploring the Black Hills of Wyoming (including Devils Tower), the Absaroka Range, and the Medicine Bow Range.
