California Desert Byways: 68 of California's Best Backcountry Drives
Presents 65 desert trips from Bishop to the Mexican border, including expanded coverage of popular destinations such as Death Valley National Park, Mojave National Preserve, and Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. This book makes high-walled canyons, lonely ghost towns, and soaring peaks from Mexico to the Great Basin easily accessible to recreational drivers. Tony HuegelŐs glove-box-sized Byways have been leading drivers to the hidden surprises found along unpaved backroads for more than 10 years. These books are for recreational drivers who want to use their four-wheel-drive or sport-utility vehicle beyond the pavement to explore, but who might not want to do hard-core or lengthy off-road driving. They are also for adventurers who use these trips as jumping-off points for muscle-powered exploration, such as hiking and mountain biking.
