Local author Charlie Nuttelman has won the 2012 Writers Digest Self-Publishing Award for his book Colorado Adventure Guide (published by Jagged Mountain Publishing), and rightly so. This photo-rich guidebook has over 500 trail descriptions for al fresco explorers looking to enjoy the Colorado wilderness in any or all seasons by foot, bike, ski or snowshoe. The 88 maps along with detailed information about gear and first-hand tips make this book educational and entertaining. The book covers northern Colorado including Golden, Boulder, Mount Evans, RMNP, Summit County, Grand County and more. (The author will hopefully have a guidebook for Southern Colorado in the coming years.) If you’re looking for a great last minute holiday gift for the Colorado outdoor enthusiast, copies of Colorado Adventure Guide can be purchased at selected book stores in northern Colorado.
