Discovering the Colorado Plateau : a guide to the region's hidden wonders
Part of the Hiking Through History series
The Colorado Plateau is America's western treasure, home to the country's highest concentration of national parks, monuments, wilderness areas, and state parks, and a near-endless bounty of wild, stunning landscape.
Discovering the Colorado Plateau will explore this region through beautiful maps, full-color photography, and detailed descriptions of the area's geography, history, and geology, as well as signature activities that encapsulate the best each locale has to offer.
By purposefully shifting the focus away from the national parks, this book introduces readers to the various public lands and protected areas that are as exciting and wonderful as any of the major parks. Unlike any other book published recently about the Plateau, this book not only acts as a source of great information and imagery, but as a practical guide and a true celebration of one of America's most beautiful and endangered lands.
