Friends of the Library presents a new travelogue: American Grand Natural Vistas in Cranbrook’s Southern Backyard. Take a virtual summer adventure in the USA; camping, hiking, backpacking, & four-wheeling in Idaho & Wyoming’s national parks & national forests. However, smoky the skies & omnipresent the threat of fire, all roads remain open & the gasoline is almost free.

A travelogue by Dan Hicks, from his solar eclipse excursion of August & September 2017; a follow-up to his Yellowstone National Park backcountry travelogue last year.
