About the Author

Ann Marie Brown made her first solo trip to Yosemite at age 22. Like many first-time visitors, she was immediately inspired by the Valley’s sheer granite walls and shimmering waterfalls. Parking her car at the first trailhead she saw, she set off on the Four-Mile Trail. Carrying nothing but a water bottle, she intended to hike only a short distance but was so wowed by the scenery that she kept on walking. Two hours later she found herself at Glacier Point, considered by many to be the grandest viewpoint in the West. Scanning the scene, she noticed tourists dressed in everything from high heels to a nun’s habit, and realized that she could have driven to Glacier Point instead of walking. Ann Marie vowed she’d never again go hiking without a map.

Felicia Kemp has been hiking since as long as she can remember. She started her blog, Family Trail Time in 2015 to share tales of hiking and travel. She and her family have hiked all over the West Coast, but she has a special love for Northern California. She’s an advocate for diversity in the outdoors, and has organized NorCal hikes for beginner hikers, BIPOC families, and women. She has spent more than a decade writing about Northern California.
