Adventure Weekends West

Sutro Media
★ ★ We're All Rechargeable! ★ ★

★ AUTHORED BY Robert Earle Howells ★ You love the outdoors . . . You love adventure . . . But you never seem to have enough time. This app is for you.

An adventure getaway can feel like two weeks of recharging time . . . IF you know where to go. And where to stay.

Weekend Adventures West has the expert scoop: detailed, unique content that you won't find in any guidebook.

Weekend Adventures West is a collection of dozens of lively, illustrated descriptions of getaway weekends in: California • Oregon • Washington • British Columbia • Alaska.

Each has been personally selected and reported by Robert Earle Howells, former editor at large of National Geographic Adventure magazine. All of them deliver unforgettable outdoor adventures, such as:

River Rafting • Day Hiking • Fly-fishing • Rock Climbing • Surfing • Backcountry Skiing • Sandboarding • Storm Watching • Kayaking • Wildlife Viewing • Mountain Biking • Road Riding • Backpacking • Camping • Kiteboarding • Scuba Diving • Telemarking • Caving • Pedal Kayaking

Adventure doesn't mean deprivation! Not when you bunk down in a great home base.

Weekend Adventures West has searched the West for some of the coolest inns and lodges in the world. You'll find:

• A treehouse suite in the Oregon woods • A yurt perched on the Big Sur coast
• A luxury camp in the High Sierra, far from any road • A beachfront bungalow on the best beach in Orange County
• Your own private island and cottage just off the BC coast • A waterfront lodge that gives discounts to kitesurfers
• A riverfront inn that you can only reach by foot or raft

Every adventure is illustrated with a photo slide show and videos. Live links lead to the information you need to book your next weekend getaway. You deserve this app!
