About the Author

SEABURY BLAIR JR. spent many years as the outdoor columnist for The Bremerton Sun, where one of his most popular features was the "Hike o' the Month." He is an avid backcountry skier and hiker, and lives in Spokane, WA.

He is also the author of Wild Roads Washington; the Creaky Knees Guide series of easy hiking books (titles cover Washington, Oregon, and Pacific Northwest National Parks and Monuments); the Day Hike! series of easy hikes that you can do in a day (titles cover the Central Cascades, the North Cascades, Mount Rainier, the Olympic Peninsula, the Columbia Gorge, and Spokane/Coeur d'Alene).


"Just in time for the National Park Service centennial...[this] guide, with topographical maps, focuses on hikes in parks and monuments in Oregon and Washington, including two dozen walks around iconic Mount Rainier and Mount St. Helens."
--Seattle Times

"Retired outdoor columnist Seabury Blair Jr. has built a second career as a guidebook author with his Creaky Knees guides...and he clearly believes that just because folks are getting a little long in the tooth or stiff in the joints doesn't mean they should be sentenced to spending their remaining years sitting in front of the television set."
--The Bookmonger, Kitsap Sun

"For seniors, those with small children and probably a lot of other folks who aren't in terrific shape."
--The Daily News

"Even with Mt. Rainier in our backyard, some of us are not made for mountain climbing. Do not be deterred! Check out [The Creaky Knees Guide, ] intended for anyone more interested in a stroll than a climb."
--Tacoma Public Library

"Hikers explore the splendor of the national parks and monuments of Oregon and Washington with this guide to 75 of the best easy-to-walk day hikes."
--Sir Read A Lot

"You'll soon find that these will be your go-to guides for enjoyable jaunts in the great outdoors."
--Trailblazer Girl
