Taking on one of Colorado’s 53 fourteeners—from stately Longs Peak and the iconic Maroon Bells to the easy to access Mt. Bierstadt—is becoming a pilgrimage for Colorado’s residents and its visitors. While more people than ever are climbing them, there’s still a dearth of good information about each mountain and its surrounding areas. Hiking Colorado’s Fourteeners fills that gap by informing adventurers—from the freshly-booted novice to the grizzled mountaineer—about each of Colorado’s iconic mountains over 14,000 feet tall.

This book is a collection of the very best non-technical hikes and scrambles on Colorado's 13,000-foot mountains. It will showcase 50 select routes on the most exciting, beautiful, and adventurous of the 637 officially recognized thirteeners. A balance of difficulty will roughly be divided into thirds: easier (about 25% of the routes), modest (50%), and difficult (25%). While the guide will cover the entire state of Colorado, there will be a slight bias toward summits within a two-hour drive of the Denver/Boulder metro area. Each of the 50 chapters includes full-color photography and maps. None of the routes are harder than class 3, making this guide suitable to hikers of all skill levels, with no need to use technical mountaineering gear. Detailed write-ups include accurate driving directions, at-a-glance stats for the peak, a turn-by-turn description of the primary route, optional route info, and when relevant, interesting history or stories about the featured peak. Fees, permits, and an index with info such as thirteener lists, helpful USFS contacts, hiking groups, and online resources are also provided.

* 70 hikes in Colorado's Front Range chosen for the beauty, variety, and the quality of the hike itself * A wide range of hikes, from easy to difficult * Complete trail descriptions, color photos, and maps The Front Range of the Colorado Rockies rises abruptly from the plains in a 150-mile stretch of foothills, rounded summits, and jagged peaks between Fort Collins and Colorado Springs. The hikes in this book were selected by members of four major groups of The Colorado Mountain Club in an occasionally contentious process. After some heated arguments, quiet horse trading, and uproarious laughter, members decided on their favorites-so these really are the best hikes in the Front Range. Each description starts with some basic information about the hike, followed by comments on the hike by the writer/photographer, directions to the trailhead, and a complete route description, including pictures from the route and a color map of the trail.

After leading successful hedge fund companies for twenty years, Anthony "Tac" Caine experienced the most extreme business catastrophe imaginable. Hedge fund companies managed by Tac Caine with a twenty-year successful track record collapsed in only two days, resulting in losses exceeding $1 billion. In the midst of managing an onslaught of legal and business challenges, Tac realized he needed more. He needed a big, positive goal, something to shoot for that would motivate him. And there's nothing bigger than Mt. Everest. With humility, humor and emotion in a page-turner story, One Day Beyond the Top of the World captures the full Mt. Everest experience. Come alongside for the entire seven-week Everest expedition from training, trekking, acclimatization, living above 17,000 feet at Everest Base Camp, the full cultural immersion of the Khumbu Valley, and finally climbing each step from Everest Base Camp to the highest point in the world. There are failures, successes, anxieties and elation on the journey, and you will discover how Mt. Everest can draw tears from even the strongest climbers. And, you will see how a Sherpa guide can evolve into a lifelong friend. Happy and successful people are driven by planning-then executing -their next big goal. We should always be metaphorically looking One Day Beyond the Top of the World to set the next meaningful goal. What is the Everest in your life? Let Tac Caine's adventure guide you to reach your own summit!

T. Duren Jones loves hiking wilderness trails. He gets out as often as he can, and enjoys taking friends and family on his explorations. Most of those who have joined his adventures still talk to him. He has hiked hundreds of trails in the American West, has summited all of the 54 Colorado 14,000 ft. peaks (now on his second round with his granddaughter), and has trekked the nearly 500 miles of the Colorado Trail's 28 segments from Denver to Durango. Once he's done with one checklist, he on to the next—this guy is nuts! This book is a follow-up to Tales from the Trails, this time with new stories presented in bite-sized pieces. Snack on a few at a time, but you might not want to put it down and end up eating, er, reading, the whole package in one sitting. As with his previous book, Trail Mix is part adventure, part travelogue, part motivational encouragement, part cautionary tale, and part stand-up comedy (at lest the author thinks so). Trail Mix is for anyone who loves spending time in the outdoors, who wishes they could be outdoors more, or who simply enjoys reading about nuts who spend time in the great outdoors. The author hopes by sharing these adventures—and misadventures—that the readers will be inspired to go out and discover their own stories.
