Sometime last year the authors of the Kansas Trail Guide contacted me asking to use one of my photos in their upcoming book to which I agreed in exchange for a copy of the book. I received the book today.
About the book…
“The book includes detailed descriptions of the best trails across Kansas by geographical area, including GPS information, how to get to the trailheads, where to park, which trails are open for cyclists, hikers, and/or horseback riders, suggestions for nearby outfitters and restaurants, and for the long distance trails or as applicable for the shorter trails, the best options for camp sites nearby and along the way.”
I”ve only done a quick scan through it”s pages but it appears to be really nicely done. In addition to trail locations, photos, maps and details it also has info on Kansas history, flora, fauna, geology, geography and more.
If I”d been asked in advance to go take a photo of the trail for the book it wouldn”t have been this shot but I was pleased after seeing it in print.
A search found the book can be purchased online at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Edit: This book was honored as one of the 15 Notable Books Of Kansas in 2016.
