"Walking is the great adventure, the first meditation, 
a practice of heartiness and soul primary to humankind. 
Walking is the exact balance between spirit and humility."
-   Gary Snyder,  The Practice of the Wild

 

 

What follows is just a list of books, maps, and travel guides that I have purchased and used in our travels in Northern California, Oregon, and Washington.  Also, I have included many links to websites with more information on the areas we have visited in the past.  There is a special emphasis upon walking adventures, day hiking and camping options for outdoor recreation.  There is really little information here on backpacking, fishing, hunting, or off-road four wheel drive adventures.  We travel mostly on paved roads and either yurt, tent camp, or stay in motels or cabins. 

If you click on nearly all of the underlined Title links, you will be taken to Amazon.com for purchasing the title. 

 

There are many websites on the Internet with good information about hiking, day hikes, walking adventures, backpacking, wilderness survival, environmental concerns, natural history, hiking supplies and gear, and how to condition yourself for hiking adventures.  For example, a volunteer for a Boy Scout Troup, Megan Compton, sent me (6/1/16) a useful link that one of her diligent Scouts, Dan, shared with her:  A Guide to Hiking Basics

Best wishes to all good hikers for summer adventures in 2016.

Notes on My Day Hiking Adventures

 

The first long day hike I remember is walking down from Glacier Point to the Yosemite Valley floor (4 miles) when I was around 12 years of age.  I backpacked on the High Sierra Trail from Sequoia National Park to Mt. Whitney Portal (72 miles) when I was 19.  I day hiked all the mountains around Los Angeles and San Bernardino in my younger years.  I've hiked in the many desert areas of Eastern California, Nevada, and Arizona.  I stayed in Bishop and day hiked in the Eastern Sierra every autumn in my 50's.  I have lived in Red Bluff, California, since 1998, and have day hiked scores of times in Northern California and Oregon. 

This year, 2016, I have many trips planned to Oregon, and campsites already reserved.  I will be camping and day hiking around: Nehalem Bay Sate Park, Sunset Beach State Park, Fort Stevens State Park, Oswald State Park, and William M. Tugman State Park. 

My current personal fitness program includes: walking 3.6 miles four days each week, weightlifting, taijiquan, gardening, and teaching yoga.  I am now 70 years of age. 

 

In 2006, my brother Philip and I hiked 11 miles to the top of North Dome in Yosemite National Park.
