Meet Diana Lindsay, one of the editors of Coast to Cactus: The Canyoneer Trail Guide to San Diego Outdoors, a book that guides you to the county’s special places and teaches appreciation and understanding of the area’s unique wonders!

More about Coast to Cactus, from sandiegoreader.com:

Coast to Cactus: The Canyoneer Trail Guide to San Diego Outdoors, released in September, 2016, is almost 600 pages long and weighs more than two and a half pounds. It contains descriptions of 245 outings (and 73 optional extension hikes) prepared by one of the best-respected hiking organizations in the county.

Diana says the Canyoneers “want people to come back from their hike and have learned something.” The color photos, the comprehensive index, the table of common and scientific plant and animal names all are intended to foster the learning process. “We intend for people to not be racing to finish a hike, but to be slow. To look around. To listen. To smell. And figure out: what is in this habitat. Why is it a hot spot? We want everybody to finish their hike and say, ‘Wow, I didn’t know that.’ If you learn to appreciate these things, you start to love them, and you will be more inclined to protect them.”
