FORMER SANDIA LABS SCIENTIST PRESENTS REVISED MOUNTAIN HIKING GUIDE 4:00 PM SATURDAY, MAY 4, AT PAGE ONE
Local author Mike Coltrin, a former Sandia Laboratories chemist, will be at Page One Books 4:00 pm Saturday, May 4, to talk about and sign the newly updated guide, "Sandia Mountain Hiking Guide, Revised and Expanded Edition."
The book is described as such: "This classic hiking guide to Albuquerque's Sandia Mountain is completely updated with color photographs, up-to-date trail descriptions, detailed maps, additional GPS data, and modified difficulty ratings for many of the featured hikes. This expanded edition also includes seven new trail descriptions, two dozen "Family Friendly" outings for hikers of all ages and abilities, and insightful "Safety First" considerations for moderate-to-difficult trails. The beautiful hikes described here, including round-trip distances, total about three hundred miles. Individual entries detail the length, elevation gain, and degree of difficulty for each trail. The author also provides detailed directions to trailheads and describes the trail terrain, scenic viewpoints, vegetation, and neighboring trails. Twenty-six contour maps of the trails throughout the Sandias are included in the interior. Additionally, a stand-alone, water-resistant, color map of the mountain trail system has been updated to accompany the hiking guide."
Coltrin is a physical chemist by training and was a member of the technical staff at Sandia National Laboratories before his recent retirement. He has enjoyed hiking in the Sandia Mountains for more than 35 years. In 2003, he finished writing a graduate-level textbook with long-time colleague Bob Kee entitled "Chemically Reacting Flow," published by John Wiley & Sons. The book describes research that Coltrin and Kee collaborated on for more than 20 years. In the Fall of 2005, Coltrin and four friends climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. He lives in Albuquerque.
