About the Author

Randi Minetor

Born, raised, and still a resident of Rochester, NY, Randi Minetor discovered the backcountry wonders of America's national parks in 1992 with her husband, photographer/lighting designer Nic Minetor. That first trip changed her life, and by 2000, the Minetors had pledged to see all 391 (now 417) national parks in their lifetimes. They found a way to subsidize this passion in 2006, when they began writing and photographing books on the parks for The Globe Pequot Press. Today Randi has written 35 books for GPP, ranging from national park travel to American history to the best day hikes in upstate New York. To date, they have visited 309 national parks. In addition, Nic's photography appears in eight Quick Reference Guides to the Birds, Trees, and Wildflowers of New York City and New York State, and the Trees and Wildflowers of the Mid-Atlantic States. Randi has also served as a ghostwriter for several non-fiction bestsellers and other books for her corporate clients. The Minetors live in Rochester, NY.
