This second volume in The Aspiring Hiker’s Guide series is meant to encourage beginner and intermediate hikers, backpackers and scramblers to explore British Columbia’s backcountry in and around the national parks of Mount Revelstoke, Glacier, Kootenay and Yoho, along with the provincial parks of Mount Assiniboine and Mount Robson, with confidence and excitement. Aspects of venturing into these areas are investigated, including advice on gear, clothing, food and equipment; procedures related to safety and etiquette; and considerations as to physical fitness and first aid. Routes and trails are detailed with colour photographs and maps, GPS coordinates, elevation gain charts, distances, natural landmarks and tips on arriving at the destination safely. Best routes to summits are described in detail to prevent confusion and injury. As well, the general histories of the trails, routes and naming conventions for some mountains add an element of understanding and intrigue about the experience of the First Peoples and early European explorers who set foot in these beautifully wild areas of western Canada.

Hiking to Beer

Hiking to Beer

Lloyd Fink was unhappy. He was overweight, he had lost his job, and he was in need of a serious life change. That's when he decided to do something just about impossible: hiking the Appalachian Trail. But that wasn't enough of a kick in the butt for Lloyd--he also gave up beer. As the ultimate motivation to meet his goal, he promised to swear off the hoppy goodness until he reached Mount Katahdin, and the finish line, in Maine. After months of preparation, Lloyd set off to Georgia to start his two thousand-mile trek. He couldn't have known on that March night that six months later he would finish his journey a changed man, while making interesting friends, experiencing breathtaking vistas, penning trail ballads on his homemade ukulele, and surviving brown recluse spider bites along the way. An adventure story, inspirational tale, and guide to roughing it in the backcountry, Hiking to Beer is a funny and poignant read for outdoor aficionados, aspiring hikers, and everyone in-between.
