The spirit of adventure is alive and well in Yosemite — all one needs to do is walk off and find it. But "adventure" need not mean scaling The Nose of El Capitan. The vast park is simply an adventurous place, with something for everyone. This pocket companion, brimming with Michael Frye's lush photographs paired with inspired quotes, captures the adventurous essence of Yosemite and the sense that something wonderful is waiting just over there. With a foreword by the legendary Royal Robbins, the book features writers, thinkers, and bona fide adventurers, including:
