Great guides for summer trekking

My name is Jessica... and I am a Lonely Planet groupie. Yes, I'm addicted to their guidebooks. Good thing, then, that they're committed to using at least 80 percent Ancient Forest Friendly Paper (AFF) that is 100 percent Forest Stewardship Council plantation timber approved.

In addition to being environmentally kind, they're just plain good ol' reads for the globe-bound traveler. And as of last month, they're updated with the complete scoop on National Parks thanks to a relaunch of the park series, which kicks off with four North American faves: Yosimite, Sequoia & King's Canyon National Parks, Yellowstone & Grand Teton National Parks, Grand Canyon National Park, and Banff, Jasper and Glacier National Parks.

In each guide, you'll find:
  • History and Environment chapters give visitors vital background information on the parks’ past and present

  • Sustainable options and green travel ideas throughout

  • A “Support Your National Park” feature gives information on how to give back to the parks and promotes sustainability and volunteering

  • Over 40 hikes

Price: $21.99
Publication Date: April 2008

Hey! Thanks for all the great info. I was browsing through a bunch of green websites and blogs and I came across yours and found it very interesting. There are a bunch of others I like too, like the daily green, ecorazzi and earthlab.com. I especially like EarthLab.com’s carbon calculator (http://www.earthlab.com/signupprofile/). I find it really easy to use (it doesn’t make me feel guilty after I take it). Are there any others you would recommend? Can you drop me a link to your favorites (let me know if they are the same as mine).
