The newest addition to Tony Huegel's Backcountry Byways series presents over 50 carefully selected backcountry trips on gravel tracks, old wagon and mining routes, and active logging roads.
Washington Byways takes you and your family to the Olympic Peninsula's soaring mountains, the volcanic cones of the Cascades, the Snake River country's precipitous canyons, and the golden hills of the Palouse. With Huegel as your scout, you'll find and explore dozens of roads and landscapes.
--56 trips on Washington's backroads
--Full-page maps, detailed descriptions, and photos, all in a unique glove-box size
--"At-a-glance" icons that show you the best hiking, biking, and camping opportunities, as well as trips featuring wildlife, historic sites, and incredible views
These trips tour impressively diverse terrain, climate zones, and vegetation. You'll be at sea level on Long Beach and climb to 7000 feet in the North Cascades; you'll turn on the windshield wipers in the Olympic Peninsula's cool rainforests and roll down the windows on the Columbia Basin's warm sagebrush steppe. Washington Byways is all you need to discover the Evergreen State.

The Deluxe Moh's Hardness Pick Set now comes in two case types. The wooden case is small enough to carry and the top screws into the base to make a perfect desk stand. The plastic case is longer but the thinner size makes it easier to carry in your field tool set.Hardness is an important and quantifiable physical characteristic of a mineral and in your effort to identify an unknown mineral, the hardness, if known, combined with other properties, can narrow your search to just a handful of possibilities. Simply scratch a smooth surface of your unknown mineral with the picks of various indicated hardness. As an example, if a No. 5 pick scratches the mineral, but a No. 4 pick does not, then your mineral hardness is 4.5. Then compare this against a table of minerals listing hardness values to aid in identifying the unknown mineral.
