Pick of the Week

With the Galileo robotic iPhone dock and some smartphone apps you can rotate, pan and tilt your iPhone to take amazing videos and panorama shots. Use the Sphere app for 360-degree shots, TimeLapse for time-lapse sequences, AirBeam for remote monitoring and Videography to track faces and movement. You'll wonder how you ever did without it. Available at Mottr.com for $149.95 for Bluetooth and $99.95 for 30-pin.

You Go, Grandma!

The first woman to hike the entire 2,050-mile Appalachian Trail, Emma Gatewood was 67 when she took off for a walk without a work to anyone with just one change of clothes and $200 in her pocket. The journey took this mother and grandmother 146 days and inspired many to follow in her footsteps. Read all about it in "Grandma Gatewood's Walk: The Inspiring Story of the Woman Who Saved the Appalachian Trail," the new book by Ben Montgomery, a Pulitzer Prize finalist. $17.38 on Amazon.

Reserve a Room; They'll Plant a Tree

Make a reservation any time between Earth Day, April 22, and Arbor Day on April 25 for stays throughout 2014 and Provenance Hotels in Washington and Oregon will plant a tree. Use the "Put Down Roots" link on any of the five hotels and they will donate to Friends of Trees, which will plant an urban tree in their honor. The hotels are:
Hotel Max in Seattle - www.hotelmaxseattle.com
Hotel Murano in Tacoma - www.murano.com
Hotel Lucia in Portland - www.hotellucia.com
Hotel deLuxe in Portland - www.hoteldeluxe.com (pictured)
