I once again apologize for my lack of recent blog posting. Believe me, it is not because I have nothing to write about. Au contraire it is because I am doing too much writing elsewhere that I haven't been able to pen any musing lately here. So what am I up to?
- Finishing up the research and writing for Day Hiking Eastern Washington. I co-authored this book with Rich Landers and you are going to love it. 125 hikes (plus bonus hikes) and interesting sidebars covering the Okanogan Highlands, Kettle River Range, Selkirks, Spokane, Palouse, Columbia Basin, Channeled Scablands, and Blue Mountains. The book should be released sometime in early 2013.
- Researching my next book, Day Hiking San Juan and Gulf Islands. You will love this one too-150 hikes in the islands, Anacortes, Point Roberts and Victoria and the Sanaach Peninsula. Have currently researched San Juan, Lopez, and Galiano-off to Orcas and Saturna next. Book will be released in early 2014.
- Planning Day Hiking Mount St Helen's! Yep-that's the next book in the line up!
