About the Author

As a journalist with more than 20 years of experience, Los Angeles resident Laura Randall has written for the New York Times, the Washington Post, Sunset Magazine, and National Geographic News Service . She is the author of 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Los Angeles, Peaceful Places Los Angeles, and Day & Overnight Hikes: Palm Springs.

When she isn't writing or hiking, Laura can be found reading Raymond Chandler novels on the beach, walking her sons to and from school, and plotting the next family road trip, which may or may not involve a spectacular hike or two.
