Backcountry Adventures: Southern California
Peter Massey, Jeanne Wilson
Backcountry Adventures: Southern California provides 2,970 miles of routes that travel through the beautiful mountain regions of Big Sur, across the arid Mojave Desert, and straight into the heart of the aptly named Death Valley. In addition to the enormously detailed trail information, there are hundreds of photos of frontier towns, historic mining camps, old railroad routes, wildflowers, and native animals. Trail history comes alive through the accounts of Spanish missionaries who first settled the coastal regions; eager prospectors looking to cash in during California's gold rush; and legends of lost mines still hidden in the state's expansive backcountry. The book appeals to virtually everyone who loves the outdoors: campers, anglers, hikers, mountain bikers, snowmobilers, amateur prospectors, sightseers, GPS owners, wildlife seekers, and more! CONTAINS 153 TRAILS, 640 PAGES, 645 PHOTOS (85 historic black & white and 560 color), AND 159 FULL-COLOR MAPS! SIZE: 8 1/2" x 10 7/8"
