A fantastic guide to the best outdoor fun in the Pacific Northwest, covering Oregon, Washington, Victoria and Vancouver in British Columbia and far northern California. This ever-popular region offers unlimited opportunities for the active traveler, and this book shows you where, when and how to find them. Kayaking, hiking, cycling, trekking, horseback riding, boating and more to fill your days with adventure. Sightseeing, museums, galleries, theaters and picnicking will take care of your down time. Maps, photos. Most people are aware that the Space Needle is in Seattle and that the Columbia River Gorge is a must-see on any trip to the Northwest. But where should you turn for information about watching the killer whales (orcas) among Washington's gorgeous San Juan Islands? Fishing along the rugged Oregon coast? Hiking in country said to be frequented by Bigfoot himself? Parasailing over Puget Sound? Engaging some llamas to carry your gear on a camping trip to the high country? And much, much more. Adventure Guide to the Pacific Northwest will take you where you want to go. -- Reader. Adventure Guide to the Pacific Northwest by Don a Marjorie Young is a Hunter Travel Guide which I can also highly recommend. We love traveling in the Pacific Northwest but there is so very much to see I couldn't imagine how they could get it all into one book, but they have done a very good job of it! The organization of the book makes it easy to find just what you want in each area from restaurants and places to stay in all price ranges, tours, camping, information sources, maps, etc. I especially like the sections called Adventures which have separate categories for on foot, horseback, wheels, water, and snow. This is a guide worth having and nominally priced. -- Bonnie NeelyState Capitol Visitor Center, 14th and Capitol Way, Olympia, WA 98501, F 360/ 586-3460, Web site www.youra.com/olympic_guide.html.
