About the Author
Randy and Pam Golden have shared their life-long love of hiking since they met at college in Florida. After marrying in 1977, they began hiking across the United States and into Canada. Among their favorite foreign destinations are Puerto Rico's El Yunque and Australia's Dandenong Mountains. They began writing about their adventures on their website, About North Georgia (ngeorgia.com). In 1998 the site's Trails section was spun off into a site of its own, Georgia Trails (georgiatrails.com). Their dogs Bessie and Sugar join them on hikes that permit pets.
