Adventure Hikes and Canyoneering in Southern California
by Christopher Earls Brennen
Publisher: Dankat Publishing 2000
Southern California is a spectacular wonderland that I have been exploring for decades and that I hope to continue to enjoy for many years to come. It started in the 1960s when I moved into the shadow of the magnificent San Gabriel Mountains and began exploring their nooks and crannies. In the early years, I followed almost all of the 100 hikes in Robinson's "Trails of the Angeles". Later, seeking to explore beyond the established trails, I and a group of students at the California Institute of Technology began a series of explorations that we termed "adventure hikes".

Read about the adventures of a group of older Scouts in Scotland as they traverse The Great Glen Way and explore Arran. I know, its Scouts and they are boring and middle class etc -- but what lies within is the truth about Scout trips.
