Dan Leeth is a full-time travel writer and photographer whose words and images have graced newspapers, magazines and books across the United States and Canada.
Growing up in the American West, Dan developed an early love of the outdoors and wild places. He has hiked, camped, backpacked, floated, crawled and climbed into and out of wilderness canyons, deserts and mountains around the world. In the winter, Dan is an avid downhill skier.
Dan was bitten by the travel bug early as a child. As a teenager, he put 60,000+ miles on his first new car in less than two years. Since then, he visited, photographed and written about travel experiences on all seven continents of the world. His specialties include Antarctica, adventure, skiing, city walks, historical sites, natural places, road trips and sharing the lighter side of travel. He is a frequent contributor to Colorado AAA's EnCompass Magazine and the Dallas Morning News travel section.
Dan has nurtured a love of photography since he was knee high to a lens cap. Largely journalistic in style, his work has graced nearly every article he has had published. His stock images may be purchased through Alamy.com.
Currently, Dan is a member of the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW), the North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) and the Colorado Authors League (CAL). He and his wife, Dianne, currently reside in Aurora, Colorado, a sprawling suburb on the sunrise side of Denver.
