ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Karl Samson
lives in Oregon, where he spends his time juggling his obsessions with
traveling, gardening, outdoor sports, and wine. Each winter, to dry out his webbed feet,
he flees the soggy Northwest to update
Frommer’s Arizona.
However, he always looks
forward to his return to the land of good espresso. Karl is also the author of
Frommer’s
Washington, Frommer’s Seattle,
and
Frommer’s Portable Portland.
