Description

The Evergreen State abounds in diverse wilderness to explore. Washington's Wilderness Areas: The Complete Guide takes you there -- from Pacific beaches on the Olympic Peninsula to the Blue Mountains in the southeast, from the glorious Mount Rainier National Park to the remote Salmo-Priest Wilderness along the Canada and Idaho borders. Climb up the rugged Sawtooth Ridge near Lake Chelan, hike cross-country in the Juniper Dunes Wilderness near Pasco, or tread gently in the delicate Alpine Lakes Wilderness. Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, another key Washington wildland, is also included in this volume. Paired with beautiful color images by award-winning photographer Charles Gurche, author Kai Huschke's text gives in-depth descriptions of hiking trails into these pristine areas. With detailed maps and driving directions, the book also touches on the human and natural history, folklore, climate, flora and fauna, and special attributes of these great places to provide an overview of Washington's 30 designated wilderness areas. This guidebook is your essential introduction to these magnificent, protected lands.
