To create this spectacular photobook, we hiked the entire 2660-mile Pacific Crest Trail from Mexico to Canada. Living in the wilderness for over five months, Chris photographed the starkly beautiful deserts of southern California, the deep blue alpine lakes and snow capped peaks of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, and the volcanoes and lush forests of Oregon and Washington. The journey was challenging, inspiring, and visually stunning. Chris’s landscape photographs portray the essence of each section of the Pacific Crest Trail. Every image is powerful. Viewed in sequence, these photographs take you on a journey through some of the most beautiful and compelling landscapes in the world.

At twenty-two, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life. With no experience or training, driven only by blind will, she would hike more than a thousand miles of the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State—and she would do it alone. Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.

Planning a thru-hike can be a somewhat daunting and overwhelming task, especially for a beginning backpacker. While preparing for my journey on the Appalachian Trail (AT), I often felt lost in a sea of information, usually overturning more questions than answers. The purpose of this guide is to help cut through the confusion, condense the information and present it in a straightforward and simple way. I want to leave you feeling more confident about your upcoming escapade, rather than intimidated by the thought of planning it. My first overnight backpacking trip was thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, so I hope my perspective can be appreciated by novice and seasoned hikers alike.
Some of the topics included in this ebook are:
-Physical & Mental Prep
-Picking a Pack
-Hygiene on Trail
-Financial Breakdown (of my hike)
-Safety & Wildlife
-Hiking With a Dog

The Sandia Mountains offer a wide range of hiking and other recreational opportunities, including more than 60 well-established hiking trails (totaling over 150 miles).
This web site is a resource to help you get out and enjoy the Sandias. The site is meant to complement the more complete information in my book Sandia Mountain Hiking Guide (UNM Press, 2005). In particular, in that book I make extensive reference to GPS information about the trails and points of interest in the Sandias. This GPS data (and much more) is available to download from the web site.
I also suggest about 25 hikes in the Sandia Mountains, with trailhead directions and maps. Click on the menu item “Hiking Trails,” above for this trail information. More complete descriptions and details can be found in the book.
I’ve given the web site its first major “facelift” in many years, so I hope you find it useful.
Drop me a note sometime to let me know about your hiking fun in the Sandias, or with any comments or suggestions (Mike@SandiaHiking.com).
Best wishes for happy hiking in the Sandias,
