Overview

Swimming Holes of California (Pro Tour) by Timothy H. Joyce

When it comes to swimming holes, we can define pros in a variety of ways. You may have already purchased this book's predecessor, Swimming Holes of California, and visited many, if not all, of its swimming holes. This makes you a pro based on experience. Another type of pro seeks out swimming holes with cliffs for jumping, while other pros like to backpack miles into the wilderness in search of freedom and solitude. Whether you enjoy one or all of the above activities, we've designed this book to meet your needs. No matter which pro option you pursue, this book will have something for you.

This is a fantastic resource for swimming hole enthusiasts that includes over 75 different California swimming holes, some for which I could not find any information online. The information for each listing is very thorough and detailed, including directions, GPS coordinates, Google Earth maps, photos, descriptions of sliding and jumping opportunities, water temperatures, best time of year to visit, nearby facilities, whether places are "clothing optional", etc. I can only imagine the amount of time and effort required to put together a publication of this magnitude. My only nitpick would be the paper and print quality; the book is printed on non-glossy paper with quality comparable to that of an inkjet printer, which doesn't really do justice to the author's photos and makes it hard to see detail on the Google Earth maps. This does not detract from my overall rating though, as all the pertinent information is in the written directions and GPS coordinates.

Tim has done it once again.  I thought the black and white version was over the top, but this book surpasses that.  Tim's photos are amazing!  He is a world class photographer who captures the beauty like no other.  We have done many of the hikes and they never disappoint.  Thorough descriptions and accurate directions.  A must have for any outdoor enthusiast.

Get off your rump. Plan a day trip and see what California has to offer while staying cool this summer. This is a great reference for such an occasion.

This is an outstanding book! The directions photos are so clear and are in Color! This is the first book I've seen of this quality. It wasn't just thrown together like many other books that just reiterate the same material. This book includes every detail from distance, difficulty, kid or dog friendly, etc. Further, the Second Edition includes all the material in the first book with an additional 20 swimming holes. Some of these places I've been looking to find for years! What a great book!

Swimming holes of California is the superior book on swimming holes, with excellent directions and all the best information.  The book is very well written and organized and I highly recommend it! I keep this book in my car during every vacation because it is as necessary to having fun as my water shoes are!  Go get this book right now before they sell out, so you can make this the best summer ever!
