The Tahoe Rim Trail is a continuous trail that travels around the mountainous rim of the Lake Tahoe Basin. Thanks to countless volunteers working under the leadership of the Tahoe Rim Trail Association, the Tahoe Rim Trail was officially completed in 2001. Since then, people from all over the world have come to Lake Tahoe to venture out on the Tahoe Rim Trail.

Color the Tahoe Rim Trail features 79 illustrations for you to color, and is the first in my series of wilderness activity books. Through engaging activities, tales of lessons learned, and education about backcountry skills and etiquette, these wilderness activity books will inspire creativity and help you cultivate adventure in your daily life.

Whether you’ve already experienced many of the amazing sites to see on the Tahoe Rim Trail or are hoping to one day visit it, Color the Tahoe Rim Trail will take you on the entire 165+ mile journey around Lake Tahoe.

Color the Tahoe Rim Trail’s Backstory

For two years after thru-hiking the Tahoe Rim Trail I was trying to figure out what type of project I was going to create out of the experience. I had considered presenting it as an illustrated story, a graphic novel, or as part of an anthology of short stories about playing in Lake Tahoe’s backcountry. None of those ideas ultimately appealed to me. Not that any of them were bad, but the story I was writing became way too pretentious. You see, I have a tendency to be preachy and act like one of those people who likes to tell other people how they should or shouldn’t enjoy the backcountry. I even went so far as to incorporate a “deep” and “profound” story (two lines per page!) in this coloring book. But the more I read what I wrote and the more I contemplated my illustrations, the more I thought, “Don’t overthink it. If it’s to be a coloring book, let it simply be a coloring book.” And, that’s exactly what Color the Tahoe Rim Trail is … a coloring book for all ages.
