About the Author
Greg Witt lives the adventures he writes about and shares with audiences around the world. His journeys take him to every corner of the globe. He has guided mountaineering expeditions in the Alps and Andes and paddled wild rivers in the Americas. He has dropped teams of adventurers into golden slot canyons, trudged through deep jungles in Africa, Central America, and Asia, and guided archeological expeditions across the parched Arabian Peninsula. Following degrees from the University of California and Brigham Young University, he had an early career in human resources management; but Greg prefers high-adventure to the high-rise, so decades ago he traded his wingtips for hiking boots, and has never looked back. Some weeks, Greg hikes more miles than he drives, which means he wears out his boots faster than he wears out his tires. He has crossed the Grand Canyon on foot over a dozen times, climbed Colorado's three highest peaks in three days, and in a recent summer in the Alps he hiked over 700 miles and gained nearly 100,000 vertical feet of elevation—the equivalent of climbing Everest nine times. Now Greg leads readers on the most breathtaking hikes and exciting outdoor adventures on the globe. He comes ready to discuss the geology, history, archaeology, weather patterns, culture, flora and fauna of the exciting locales he loves. Other titles include: Ultimate Adventures: A Rough Guide to Adventure Travel, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Salt Lake City and Exploring Havasupai: A Guide to the Heart of the Grand Canyon (May 2009), and Off the Tourist Trail, (July 2009). He is a contributing editor of Make the Most of Your Time on Earth, A Rough Guide to the World. Working from his Provo, Utah home, in the shadows of the Wasatch Mountains, Greg's research and exploration continues to uncover the unknown and surprising adventures just waiting to be experienced. Through his two adventure travel companies, Alpenwild and Adventure in Utah, he guides people to the outdoor destinations he knows best—the Swiss Alps and the Wasatch Mountains of Utah. If you join him, you can be guaranteed a phenomenal adventure peppered with the unexpected.
