Leigh Wilson:

Leigh Wilson is a travel blogger and freelance writer from Moline, Illinois. Travel has been her passion for as long as she can remember. Her parents loved traveling and had an RV when she was small. Her dad was a door-to-door Kirby vacuum salesman, so she often traveled with him during school breaks and summers.

In 2017, after a 20-year marketing career, Leigh set out on a 4-month road trip with her Airedale Terrier, in search of a new town to call home. For a time, she planted in Tucson, Arizona, but upon arrival in Park City, Utah, she felt like she was home. When she’s not writing or traveling, you’ll find Leigh out hiking.

Writing this book has been an excellent opportunity for her to explore the deepest corners of her new home state. Every time she leaves home, the diversity of Utah landscapes and attractions continues to amaze her.
