California Desert Byways, 3ed
Tony Huegel


California Desert Byways presents 65 desert trips from Bishop to the Mexican border, including expanded coverage of popular destinations such as Death Valley National Park, Mojave National Preserve, and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. This book makes high-walled canyons, lonely ghost towns, and soaring peaks from Mexico to the Great Basin easily accessible to recreational drivers. Tony Huegel’s glove-box-sized Byways have been leading drivers to the hidden surprises found along unpaved backroads for more than 10 years. These books are for recreational drivers who want to use their four-wheel-drive or sport-utility vehicle beyond the pavement to explore, but who might not want to do hard-core or lengthy off-road driving. They are also for adventurers who use these trips as jumping-off points for muscle-powered exploration, such as hiking and mountain biking.

Cycling's Greatest Misadventures



Cycling, one of the world’s most popular sports, brings to mind Lance Armstrong, the Tour de France, and images of racers crashing into guardrails in the French Alps. Yet every day people on bikes experience hazardous, jaw-dropping, and adrenaline-pumping calamities that become the war stories of not only the pros but also the “average” biker.

The book contains 25 gripping and sometimes unbelievable stories of crashes, freak accidents, animal attacks, meltdowns, race sabotages, and bad judgment calls that bring to life the strange things that happen once people step on the pedals of their road, mountain, or commuter bikes.

The stories will bring you to the edge of your seat, warm your heart, make you laugh, and leave you shaking your head with disbelief.

Day & Section Hikes Pacific Crest Trail: Washington, 2nd edition
Adrienne Schaefer


Washington is a dynamic state, to say the least. It's amazing how quickly the landscape can change: Fires rage in the summer, closing trails and burning huge swaths of forest; bridges get washed away in massive floods; and avalanches knock trees over like matchsticks, taking out entire sections of trail with them. The second edition of Day and Section Hikes Pacific Crest Trail: Washington, by local author Adrienne Schaefer, provides hikers with updated trail and road conditions, places to visit in the great mountain towns surrounding them, and information on some of the major environmental events that have happened over the past four years, which includes the largest wildfire season in Washington State history. The second edition also includes five new hikes, one of which travels along the glaciated flanks of Glacier Peak through a breathtaking section of the PCT that was closed 2003-2011.

With new maps, photos, and updated trail information, this guide highlights sections of the PCT in the Columbia River Gorge, Gifford Pinchot National Forest with views of Mount Adams, Mount Rainier National Park, and Pasayten wildernesses. The guide includes ratings for scenery, trail condition, difficulty, solitude, and accessibility for children. In addition, it has driving directions.

Day and Section Hikes Pacific Crest Trail: Southern California

Day and Section Hikes Pacific Crest Trail: Southern California
David Harris


A succinct, portable guide to the best segments of the Pacific Crest Trail in Southern California.

The Pacific Crest Trail was designated as one of the first National Scenic Trails way back in 1968. As it traverses the “high road” from Mexico to Canada, incredible views are not only commonplace but also uniquely diverse, because the trail connects six of North America’s seven eco-zones. The PCT’s familiar, well-worn path is a special place for hikers from all walks of life on walks of all lengths and for all reasons.

Instead of guiding you through the arduous task of hiking the entire PCT, the goal of this book is to help you plan trips that incorporate hiking on the PCT in Southern California, whether you have just an afternoon to spare or you want to escape for the entire weekend. 

Carefully edited maps and elevation graphs generated with GPS data collected by the author on the trail will help make your trip a success.

This cargo-pocket guide offers author-tested advice to help you make the most of your time away from civilization, however long (or short) that stretch may be.
