Mount Shasta, CA
John Soares hasn't written any gear reviews.
I live near Mount Shasta near the top of northern California. It's a very rural area with lots of mountains, streams, glacial lakes, and hiking trails.
I love to hike and do it whenever I can. I write the Northern California Hiking Trails blog, and I'm also the author of two hiking guides published by The Mountaineers Books:
* 100 Classic Hikes in Northern California, third edition
* 75 Hikes in California's Mount Shasta and Lassen Volcanic National Park Regions, revised edition
While I enthusiastically cash my royalty checks for my two books, I make most of my money by freelance writing for college textbook publishers and selling information products for writers. Find out more at ProductiveWriters.com.
