Overview


Hidden guides combine unique travel choices, outdoor adventures and little-known locales into a guide where vacations meet adventures. Each guide includes detailed maps, complete internet information for each listing, highlighted author favorites, suggested itineraries, and walking and driving tours. While Seattle may be leading the growth in this red-hot region, there are still many unspoiled getaways to be found in the Pacific Northwest. This guide balances coverage of vintage favorites with new hot spots. Hidden Pacific Northwest takes travelers one step further by adding extensive coverage of outdoor activities, from windsurfing the Columbia River Gorge to climbing glaciers on Mount Rainier to sea kayaking the British Columbia coast. It details 333 places to hike and 726 campgrounds. Also described are distinctive lodging options -- including 93 coastal inns -- 18 covered bridges to write home about, 10 lighthouses to climb, and 45 places to shop for Northwest crafts. This edition features 53 maps.

Meet the Author


Rainbound in a Mexican hotel when he was thirteen years old with nothing to read except an abandoned biography of Rimbaud, Eric Lucas decided to become a writer. He stole the book (which he still has) and set out to become a wild, decadent poet Finding the market for florid poetry limited, he began writing travel and magazine articles. He has now settled down (a bit) and lives on Vaughn Island in Puget Sound. An avid outdoorsman, he loves the Pacific Northwest's tall, forbidding mountains as much as its sophisticated cities. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
