“Writing hiking books is a labor of love,” says Greg Witt, author of 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Salt Lake City. But he notes that one the most enjoyable benefits of writing the book was the number of surprise wildlife encounters on the trail. “When you hit the trail early in the morning and hike during the week when fewer people are on the trail, you have a much greater chance of seeing an amazing variety of wildlife.”

As Greg was hiking trails in the Wasatch Mountains he saw deer and moose on a regular basis. “A 1400-pound moose can be threatening,” he said. “Coming around the corner and seeing a moose in the middle of the trail can be startling and may even be reason to turn around, unless the moose gets out of the way.”

He also saw mountain goats, elk, pronghorn antelope, bighorn sheep, bison, beaver, fox, porcupine and bison, in addition to a number of smaller critters. “Rattlesnakes frequently bask in the sun on mountain trails, and I’ve nearly stepped on a few of them.”

In addition to being a busy author, Greg Witt is also an adventure guide in the Alps and in Utah. He does over 40 media appearances and speaking engagements annually.

A Guide to the Heart of the Grand Canyon

 
Deep in the Grand Canyon lies a place of unmatched beauty—a place where blue-green water cascades over fern-clad cliffs into travertine pools, where great blue heron skim canyon streams, and where giant cottonwoods and graceful willows thrive in the shade of majestic sandstone cliffs. Havasupai is a paradise enveloped in one of the earth’s most rugged and parched landscapes.

Exploring Havasupai by author Greg Witt is the essential destination guide for those visiting the area. The updated guidebook is filled with insider tips, fascinating background, and essential information. It identifies many new hikes, mines, springs, and historical sites never before revealed in a Grand Canyon or Havasupai guidebook. Details on canyon geology, weather patterns, and the unique flora and fauna add depth to a hiker's experience.

Exploring Havasupai includes detailed maps, trail descriptions, stunning full-color photographs, and intriguing historical insights. This is the must-have guide for canyon visitors, whether they are arriving by helicopter, on horseback, or on foot.
