About the Author

As a fulltime travel writer and photographer, Andrew Hempstead has spent many years exploring, photographing, and writing about Canada. He looks forward to spending every second summer at home in the Canadian Rockies, traveling mountain highways and hiking trails, exploring new places, and updating old favorites. He spends as much time as possible on the road, traveling incognito, experiencing the many and varied delights of the region just as his readers do. The result is the book you hold in front of you, the most comprehensive and up-to-date source of information available for traveling in the Canadian Rockies.

Andrew has been writing since the late 1980s, when he left an established career in advertising and took off for Alaska, linking up with veteran travel writer Deke Castleman to research and update the fourth edition of the Moon Handbook to Alaska and the Yukon. Since then, he has produced guidebooks to British Columbia, Vancouver and Victoria, Alberta, Western Canada, Atlantic Canada, and Nova Scotia. He is also the author of Moon guidebooks to Australia and New Zealand, and a contributor to Moon San Juan Islands, Road Trip USA, Northwest Best Places, and Eyewitness Guide to the USA, as well as the updater of The Illustrated Guide to New Zealand. His writing and photographs have appeared in a wide variety of other media, including National Geographic Traveler, Travesias, Where, Interval World, Microsofts Automap, and on the Alaska Airlines and Expedia websites. Andrew has spoken on guidebook writing to a national audience, has contributed to a university-level travel writing textbook, and has been called on by CNN Travel as a Canadian travel expert.

Andrew lives with his wife and two children in Banff, Canada.
