Outdoor Navigation with GPS 3ed

Outdoor Navigation with GPS 3ed
Stephen W. Hinch


For outdoor adventurers who hike, fish, kayak, cross-country ski, or mountain bike in the backcountry, a GPS receiver can help them reach their destination and return safely--but only if they know how to use it! Here is the guide to getting the most out of a GPS receiver, from basic consumer advice to advanced techniques. It even includes fun solo and team games that utilize GPS. Starting with essential definitions such as UTM coordinate systems, position formats, and map datums, and moving on to creating "waypoints," and using your GPS with a computer, this succinct book teaches you what you really need to know for outdoor GPS use, including basic map-and-compass skills and primitive navigation techniques that you can use if your GPS unit fails.

Advanced techniques are also covered, such as creating custom maps, and new technologies are discussed, including using GPS-enabled mobile phones, (and why they won’t always find your position in the wilderness) and how to use GPS with Google Earth and Google Maps. With years of experience as a GPS instructor, Hinch is well-versed in all aspects of navigation and GPS use, and he covers them all in a jargon-gree, easy-to-follow style.

    Walking Salt Lake City
    Lynn Arave and Ray Boren


    From Renowned Temple Square to Suburban Village Charmers, 30+ Easy Routes Take You Deep into Utah's Capital-city Neighborhoods

    A new title in the Walking series, Walking: Salt Lake City is geared to first-time visitors to Salt Lake City--and to local residents. Both will enjoy the history and tales about places they thought they knew, and will be surprised to find walking destinations they may not have considered before.

    Each tour in the stylish, portable format touches on history, culture, and local architecture, plus insider recommendations on eateries, galleries, and nightlife. With clear maps depicting each walk, parking and public transit info, at-a-glance summaries and Points of Interest appendices, there's no better way to discover a city than on foot with a Walking guide. 

    Walking Salt Lake City is a time-traveling guide to Salt Lake City's past and to its vibrant present. Written by Utah natives, it presents rambles of every kind. The 30+ tours explore the city’s downtown, which is experiencing an invigorating renaissance; Temple Square, world headquarters of the Latter-Day Saints Church; Capitol Hill; character-filled neighborhoods like the Avenues and “15th and 15th”; and semi-rural surprises near and within the bustling city, from Memory Grove and City Creek Canyon, a stone’s throw from metropolitan skyscrapers, to tucked-away and nearly forgotten Miller Bird Preserve and the appropriately named Hidden Hollow.

    While snow-capped mountains, famous canyon resorts, and the inland sea that gave the city its name invitingly beckon hikers, skiers, snowboarders, climbers, and day-trippers, Walking Salt Lake City unveils tempting reasons to enjoy the urban setting itself. Thoughtfully designed, the guide offers precise directions, easy to follow summaries, and tips about inviting eateries and shopping havens. Whether you are out for a heart-pumping workout or an evening stroll, filling an hour or a day, or count yourself a Utah visitor, a new resident or a lifelong local, this book is designed with you in mind.

    Trail Running Bend and Central Oregon
    Lucas Alberg


    Trail Running Bend and Central Oregon is an extensive guide to the best trail running in an area known for its trails. For years, Bend has been called one of the top trail-running destinations, but until now there has never been a book solely dedicated to running the trails. Author and trail runner Lucas Alberg provides detailed descriptions of the area’s best loop runs, including several new trails added to the area within recent years. From classic high desert runs to the east in the Badlands, to mountain escapes and high alpine scenery to the west in the Cascades, Trail Running Bend and Central Oregon highlights the unique and diverse geography that the region has to offer.

    This guide is smartly organized by season, so runners can know when to hit the right trails at the right times throughout the year. Whether you’re out for a long winter run, a quick jaunt before an evening at the pub, or a summer affair through the wildflower-strewn paths high in the backcountry, Lucas has explored these routes in depth to ensure you’re hitting the dirt at the perfect time.

    The 50 routes described in the book are all located within 65 miles from Bend and a short drive away from Portland, which means that trail runners will spend more time doing what they love to do, instead of spending time behind the windshield in anticipation. Lucas provides detailed trailhead directions to ensure getting there is the easy part, along with route maps, elevation profiles, and points of interest, so that runners know going in what to expect and when.

    Trail Running Bend and Central Oregon is written from the runner’s perspective, for the runner. The book focuses on the best trails for trail running and brings together a combination of trails in loop form that lend themselves to the sport. With a zest and passion for the trails, Lucas captures the best of what Central Oregon has to offer for runners and brings this knowledge to the public through his book.

    A Fork in the Trail
    Laurie Ann March


    A new cookbook, A Fork in the Trail, will forever change the way you eat on your outdoor adventures, whether backpacking in the wilderness, paddling, or even car camping. Inspired by foods from all over the world and the guiding principle of “if you wouldn’t eat it at home, why eat it in the backcountry,” Laurie Ann March has created 208 lightweight, mouth-watering recipes to turn an ordinary backcountry trip into a gourmet adventure.

    Some recipes are cooked and dehydrated before the trip, a process that’s surprisingly easy. Preparing dishes such as Lemon Wasabi Hummus is as simple as adding boiling water. Other recipes, like Tropical Couscous and Chai Tea Pancakes, can be prepared in camp in just minutes. Laurie also demystifies backcountry baking; who wouldn’t want to end a long day of hiking with comforting Pear Berry Crumble topped with Trail Yogurt?
