Whether you're planning your first family adventure or you're a seasoned pro, Arizona Family Outdoor Adventure is the definitive guide for families exploring the Grand Canyon State.
Experienced writer and adventurer Chels Knorr takes us across Arizona--from the winding slot canyons of the north, past the iconic red rocks of Sedona, and down through the cacti-covered hillsides of the south, with locations for camping, hiking, biking, birding, and stargazing throughout the entire state. Organized geographically with maps, detailed descriptions, and beautiful photography, every activity is graded for difficulty, age-appropriateness, and interest so readers know which are right for their family. Approachable and inclusive, this book embraces the idea that Arizona outdoor adventures are for everyone.
Chels Knorr is a brand copywriter, an Arizona-based freelance magazine journalist, and a mom. Her work has appeared in Arizona Highways, Phoenix Magazine, Verve, and elsewhere. She holds an MFA in creative nonfiction from the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts, and she lives in Phoenix, Arizona.
