She is the author of Walking Denver (Wilderness Press), which her daughter, Sophie Seymour, contributed to for the book's second edition. Mindy is also the author of Moon Denver, Boulder & Colorado Springs (Moon Travel), and she contributes regularly to the Denver Post, Colorado Parent, and other publications both in print and online. She also works in healthcare communications. Before becoming a guidebook author, Mindy covered regional topics for The New York Times's Rocky Mountain Bureau. She earned a degree in journalism at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Mindy lives in Denver with her husband, Mike Seymour; her daughter, Sophie; and the family's nonhiking cat, Marvel. Kim Lipker grew up in Colorado, loving the outdoors from an early age; and she did most of the hikes in this book, never imagining that her frolics through the forest would ever land themselves in print. Kim coauthored the fourth and fifth editions of Best Tent Camping: Colorado (with Johnny Molloy) and Day & Overnight Hikes: Rocky Mountain National Park (both from Menasha Ridge Press). In addition to writing books, she works in the Department of Language, Culture & Equity at Poudre School District, and she has written a regular parenting column and other features for Rocky Mountain Parent magazine. Kim lives in Fort Collins, Colorado, with her three children.
