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.
Kathy Morey has authored or co-authored numerous Wilderness Press titles, including Hot Showers, Soft Beds, & Dayhikes in the Sierra, Sierra North, Sierra South, as well as books in the popular Wilderness Press Hawaii Trails series.
