He has also written more than 100 hiking, political and humorous essays for regional newspapers since December 2010. 

The 150-page Hiking Southern Nevada features color maps, photos and information about 25 accessible hikes. “These stories and hikes are for the average person/family that understands the value of nature, but never quite gets out to enjoy it,” Garrison said.

Garrison has hiked the American Southwest for more than 25 years, accompanied by his wife, Deb Looker. His books are available on Amazon. Learn more at the Hiking Southern Nevada Facebook page or by emailing Garrison.
