Description

An important update to his very popular first edition, Hansen's enthusiasm for exploration comes through in this full-color, fully-detailed tribute and guide to the great roads of America's Pacific Northwest. Both visitors to the region and lifetime locals will enjoy and learn from the 30+ trips that Hansen has planned and perfected. Designed from top to bottom for motorcyclists, this new second edition includes topographical maps for each trip, specific directions, and tips on the best places to eat, sleep, and visit. Hansen guides motorcyclists through the areas around Seattle and Portland, up and down the coats of Washington, Oregon, and northern California, around the volcanos of Mt. Saint Helens, Mt. Hood, and Mt. Ranier, across the desert of Oregon, out to the San Juan Islands, and over the border into parts of British Columbia. Riders will see everything from the most interesting places in the region's history, to the hills, inlets, islands, and valleys that make the American Northwest a favorite among motorcycle enthusiasts.
