Meet the Author

Kevin J. Carnahan developed a love of nature at a very early age thanks to his parents, who often told him to "go outside and play." He has lived in the Washington, D.C., area his entire life and has participated in just about every sport and activity within these pages. After years of telling friends and family about fun places to go, he decided to compile his lists and descriptions into this, his first book. Kevin received his bachelor of arts degree from Mary Washington College and works at a large Internet company by day. He lives in Arlington, Virginia.
