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 the Frommer’s Arizona guide. However, he always looks forward to his return to the land of good espresso. Karl is also the author of Frommer’s Oregon, as well as Frommer’s Washington State and Frommer’s Seattle.
