Hot Showers, Soft Beds, & Dayhikes in the Sierra, 3ed
Kathy Morey


With this book in hand, hikers can spend their days wandering in wildflower meadows, hiking to cragged peaks, or swimming in cobalt-blue lakes in the Sierra Nevada, and then settle into a deck chair at sunset to enjoy the alpenglow. Hot Showers, Soft Beds, & Dayhikes in the Sierra describes 112 carefully chosen dayhikes in Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon national parks, John Muir, Ansel Adams, Desolation, and Emigrant wilderness areas, and more. Many hikes have easy-through-strenuous options, and every hike listed is in close proximity to one or more quality accommodations (over 80 cabins, B&Bs, motels, lodges, guest ranches, and resorts are described). The fully updated third edition is also completely reorganized and redesigned.

Hunting Nature's Fury
Roger Hill with Peter Bronski


Each year, at least 1,200 tornadoes batter the United States. While most occur in Tornado Alley—a vast, weather-beaten swath of middle America—in truth, tornadoes can occur almost anywhere. And where there are tornadoes, there are storm chasers. They come in all shapes and sizes, from hobbyists to researchers to professional chasers. There is one, however, who stands well above the rest: Roger Hill.

Hunting Nature’s Fury tells the story of Roger Hill and his love affair with storm chasing, taking you on a suspenseful and dramatic ride across the Great Plains, into the Deep South, even into the eyes of such recent hurricanes as Katrina. You’ll accompany Hill as he braves close calls, makes history, and gains insight into the science of severe weather. This is a story of a storm chaser obsessed with the storms that almost killed him; of resiliency in the face of disaster; and of humility in the presence of the awesome power of nature.

Includes eight color pages of jaw-dropping photos taken by Hill showing many of the storms chronicled in the book.

John Muir Trail Data Book - UPDATED
Elizabeth Wenk


A derivative of the comprehensive Wilderness Press guidebook John Muir Trail by Sierra expert Elizabeth Wenk, this data book is perfect for the weight-conscious hiker. A brief introductory section provides planning data, including information on permits, trailhead transport, and food resupplies. This is followed by on-the-trail information, including custom-made topo maps, elevation profiles, data tables, and labeled panoramas from prominent passes. There are tables for trail junctions, nearly 300 campsites, ranger stations, food-storage lockers, and lateral trails accessing the JMT. All tables include GPS waypoints, cumulative distances (given for both southbound and northbound), and elevation. The campsite table has long been a favorite with JMT hikers and has been comprehensively updated with new campsites and information on fire restrictions. The two-color topo maps, including both the trail and surrounding ridges, are scaled and framed with a JMT hiker in mind. The trails shown on the maps are derived from GPS tracks, and the data from the tables is plotted onto the maps for quick reference. Additional maps are provided for certain trailheads and difficult-to-navigate areas, such as Yosemite Valley, Tuolumne Meadows, the Reds Meadow and Devils Postpile area, the regions around Lake Thomas Edison and Vermilion Valley Resort, and Lone Pine. The labeled panoramas allow hikers to easily identify nearby peaks during well-earned breaks atop passes. If you would like detailed information on planning for your trip, considerations for hiking in the Sierra Nevada, or a trail description, those are only available in the comprehensive John Muir Trail book.

NOTES:
Here are two new maps to help you navigate the southern end (to Whitney Portal) of the John Muir Trail, including two trailheads about 20 miles south, shown on the Cottonwood Map:

One of America's deepest gorges, Kings Canyon plunges more than 8000 feet and extends nearly eleven miles in length.
