Northern California Atlas & Gazetteer 6th edition (book review)
Topographic Maps - Kayakers, canoers and rafters need good maps for GPS, trip planning and driving directions.
|Published by DeLorme, 6th Edition, 2003. ISBN-10: 0899332870. ISBN-13: 978-0899332871.|
The book Northern California Atlas & Gazetteer provides a handy, portable set of maps covering all of northern California from the Smith River to the Merced River, nicely bound together with no folding required. The scale is 1:150,000, making the maps great for driving and for locating whitewater rivers and major creeks. Larger local maps will be needed to focus in on finer details of backcountry dirt roads and smaller creeks.
This DeLorme Gazeteer is a very valuable resource for boating (kayaking, canoeing & rafting) in California, both for trip planning and for driving to your destination. Don't leave home without it !! (**** - my rating 4 stars out of 5).
