About the Author

Gerry Shea moved to Kamloops from Vancouver at the age of nine, which is when he became enchanted by the nearby hills. It was on a family vacation many years later that he discovered the mountains and began hiking and climbing in his spare time, gathering knowledge and experience that he has since used to help beginning hikers, scramblers and backpackers to trek safely. Gerry lives in Kamloops with his wife and children and is the author of The Aspiring Hiker’s Guide 1: Mountain Treks in Alberta and The Aspiring Hiker’s Guide 2: Mountain Treks in British Columbia.
