About the Author

Joshua Berman's first camping trip was in 1973 at the age of 4 months, in a yellow VW. His parents took him car-camping from West Virginia to northern Maine to Niagara Falls. He never stopped camping for fun, and along the way, found various ways to do it professionally, working for Outward Bound, The U.S. Forest Service, Peace Corps Nicaragua (that was kind of like camping), and for one crazy summer in 2003, as a firefighter with the National Park Service.

Joshua has been exploring Colorado for decades. He writes a monthly column for The Denver Post called "Around Colorado." He is also a "Local Expert" for, as well the author of their Colorado guide. These days, Joshua loves cozy car camping with his wife and three daughters as they continue to explore the state together.

Joshua is a freelance writer and Spanish teacher based in Boulder. In addition to Colorado Camping, Joshua is the author of Moon Belize, Maya 2012: A Guide to Celebrations in Mexico, Guatemala, Belize and Honduras, Moon Nicaragua, and Moon Living Abroad in Nicaragua.
