Kirstin Olmon Phillips & Kelly Phillips
Tempe, AZ

Kirstin Olmon Phillips and Kelly Phillips, transplants from other parts of the United States, both fell in love with Arizona from the first saguaro. Now they combine 37 years of experience roaming the Grand Canyon State’s many landscapes. They live in Flagstaff, with their dog, Luna, in a house that never gets cleaned on weekends, when trip planning often consists of just packing the dog into the pickup and picking a promising dotted line on the map. They never tire of providing vicarious adventures for friends and are thrilled to share Arizona’s wonders with a wider audience in their first book.
