About the Book

T. Duren Jones gets out into the wilderness as often as possible—camping, fishing, hiking, desert trail trekking and “bagging” peaks—and does he have stories to tell! He’s hiked hundreds of trails, completed the nearly 500 miles of the Colorado Trail, and has summited all 54 of Colorado’s 14,000-ft peaks. He loves the outdoors—and check-off lists. He’s kinda crazy that way. 

He’ll often drag friends and family on his wilderness quests…and most of them have survived his escapades. Tales from the Trails—part adventure journal, part travelogue, part motivational encouragement, part stand-up comedy—includes 26 mostly-true outdoor stories from trails and climbs around the American West. 

This book is for anyone who loves spending time in the outdoors, who wish they could be outdoors more, or who simply enjoy reading about other nuts who spend time outdoors. 

About the Author
T. Duren Jones

T. Duren Jones gets out into the wilderness as often as possible, camping, fishing, hiking, desert trekking, and “bagging” peaks—and does he have stories to tell! He’s hiked hundreds of trails, completed the nearly 500 miles of the Colorado Trail, and has summitted all 54 of Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks. He’s kinda crazy that way. And now he’s on his second round, conquering those mammoth mountains with his granddaughter.

Tim enjoys taking friends, family, and his wife, Diane, on wilderness quests with him...and most of them have survived his escapades. His first book is titled Tales from the Trails. The book is part adventure journal, part travelogue, part motivational encouragement, part stand-up comedy—and includes 26 nearly true outdoor stories from trails and climbs around the American West.

A former Periodicals Director, Tim (he thinks T. Duren sounds more impressive) has worked in marketing, advertising, and publishing for more than 25 years. He currently does freelance commercial art, marketing, and advertising consulting.

Tim and Diane have raised four creative and equally adventurous children. He and Diane enjoy an active outdoor lifestyle together that includes biking, softball, snowshoeing, and hiking the many wonderful trails in their home state of Colorado.
