My new book, The World’s Best National Parks in 500 Walks from Thunder Bay Press is officially out today! You should be able to order it from any major retailer but the smaller the better so check with your local and online independent booksellers first!
To celebrate, I recently packed both my books to the top of Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park, one of my favorite hikes in the U.S.
From 500 Walks: # 83. Angel’s Landing in Utah’s Zion National Park
After Half Dome’s cable route in Yosemite, Angel’s Landing might be the second-most hair-raising popular hike in any U.S. national park. While Half Dome has cables, Angel’s Landing has chains bolted to the rocks in the narrowest, most white-knuckle spots. The 5-mile long out and back route starts with a whiplashing set of 21 switchbacks called Walter’s Wiggles and then tiptoes along a shockingly narrow ridge with drop offs on both sides to an astounding viewpoint of Zion Canyon.
I will have signed copies of both of my books for sale within the next month, as soon as I can work out some nomadic mailing address logistics (I’m back on the road again full time). When I do I’ll post a link here!
A big CONGRATS! Well done.
Angel’s Landing. 👍 What a wonderful hike!
