Description

The comprehensive mile by mile guide to one of America’s most scenic drives described through the words and photographs of a seasoned local naturalist...

Features

* Off-the-beaten path hikes and side trips you find in regular guidebooks.

* Secret wildlife watching spots and tips for how to find wildlife.

* A local’s perspective on natural attractions along the route.

* Where to camp (for free!) on public lands.

* Reviews of hotels, restaurants, and private picnic spots along the drive.

The Drive

Highway 89A drops off the southern edge of the Colorado Plateau, through a fascinating landscape of ancient lava flows and giant sandstone spires and cliffs. The plant and animal life along the drive is as bizarre as it is beautiful. As the elevation decreases along the drive, conifer forests give way to diverse chaparral, woodland, and desert environments lined by the verdant streamside forests of Oak Creek. Each of these ecosystems are home to unique plants and animals including pig-like javelina and agave (the plant tequila is made from) in the desert, and reptile-hunting black hawks and giant Arizona sycamore trees along Oak Creek. Wildlife watching, especially birding, is exceptional in Oak Creek Canyon. Bring your binoculars!

A New Kind of Travel Guide

Roadside Nature is a new, different style of natural history travel guide that aims to cover the most spectacular scenic drives on the planet as well as some less popular routes that offer wilder, more intimate outdoor experiences for independent-minded travelers. Most nature guides cover identification of birds, reptiles, plants, rocks, and so on, or they focus on a particular environment, like the Sonoran Desert or the Everglades. Travel guides tend to concentrate on eating, sleeping, shopping, and city-based cultural and natural attractions.

Roadside Nature approaches nature-based travel a little differently; they describe the most prominent and fascinating natural features (whether they are geologic, avian, meteorological, or furry) along a specific travel path. Like other travel guides, Roadside Nature Travel Guides also cover the topics of eating and sleeping, but with the independent, outdoor-oriented traveler in mind, focusing mostly on quiet picnic spots and out of the way places to camp on public lands.

The biggest difference between a Roadside Nature Travel Guide and other guides is that they are written by local naturalists who are intimately familiar with their environments and passionate about sharing their knowledge with others. This hand-crafted approach lets you bring along the experience and knowledge of a local guide without cramping the independence or discovery that should be a part of every good trip.
