Meet the Author


Charles Liu immigrated to the United States from China in 1980 and settled in a suburb of Phoenix with his extended family. Spending his formative years attending Arizona State University, he grew increasingly fond of the Grand Canyon State’s diverse outdoor offerings. Hiking quickly became his passion. An active member of several hiking clubs and creator of his own hiking group, Liu has led countless hikes over the years, including annual treks to the depths of the Grand Canyon and to the 12,633-foot summit of Humphreys Peak, Arizona’s highest point. Now a software engineer by trade, Charles spends much of his spare time hiking, photographing, and writing about trails around Arizona and throughout the Southwest.
