Cover photo for new 'Games and Activities' taken at Vasquez Rocks

Q: Love the cover to you new book, Hikes with Tykes: Games and Activities. Where was it taken and who’s the boy? – papahiker76

A: Thanks for the compliment, papahiker76. The photo was taken at Vasquez County Park near Agua Dulce, Calif. The site might look familiar – it was featured in a few “Star Trek,” “The Bionic Woman,” and “Bonanza” episodes. The boy is my son, Kieran, who’s also on the cover of the first book in the series, Hikes with Tykes: A Practical Guide to Day Hiking with Kids. Enjoy the book!
