About the Author

Ladona Tornabene, Ph.D., CHES, is an Associate Professor of Health Education at the University of Minnesota Duluth. She desires to promote physical activity in natural settings and believes that the North Shore, with its breathtaking scenery, is prime incentive for accomplishing such a mission. Dr. Tornabene is also an avid photographer with a passion to empower others through her work. She has begun a scholarship fund to help nontraditional students return to school and health education majors intern abroad through her print sales. Melanie Morgan is a Minnesota native who loved walking in the woods near her family cabin as a child. Being involved in the hiking and writing of Gentle Hikes seemed like an extension of those good feelings and brought back a sense of nostalgia and fond memories. Melanie enjoys a sense of adventure; the love of exploration leads her to many beautiful locations. She and her husband continue to enjoy hiking and exploring whenever and wherever they happen to be. Lisa Vogelsang, Ph.D., serves as needed as an adjunct assistant professor at the University of Minnesota Duluth in Health Education and at the College of St. Scholastica in Psychology and American Sign Language. She is also a part-time professional photographer specializing in landscapes of Minnesota's North Shore. A former two-time Olympian, she loves the outdoors. Lisa enjoys photography, hiking, biking, sea kayaking, cross country skiing, and snowshoeing. After six ankle surgeries and developing severe arthritis, she must keep her hikes short. Her disability was, in part, a catalyst in the conception of this book.
