About the Author

Joe Cuhaj is an Alabama transplant, having grown up in Mahwah, New Jersey, near the Harriman/Bear Mountain state parks where his love of hiking and the outdoors began. Joe, his wife, Maggie, daughter Kellie, their two dogs, cat, and horse live in Daphne, Alabama, just east of Mobile, on the Gulf Coast. Joe is a full-time systems programmer for a local company, but finds frequent visits to area wildlife refuges, wetlands, and Oak Mountain State Park solace from the keyboard.
