About Greg Witt
“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.
