  • Hiking & Exploring Utah's San Rafael Swell 4th Ed. ~NEW~

    HIKING AND EXPLORING UTAH'S SAN RAFAEL SWELL 4TH EDITION
    KELSEY PUBLISHING
     
    This book covers the same areas as previous editions, but has lots of updates, plus half a dozen completely new hiking regions.  Some new hikes are to the top of, or inside, Hondu Arch from Tomsich Butte; and to Johns Hole, Keesle Canyon & Crack–climbers will love this one.  Lots of new history  too.  One is a hike, or drive if the 4WD road it’s too bad, to an area where in 1943, a US Army Air Force plane went down with 6 men–which happens to be in a very scenic valley at the south end of the Swell.  Also discussed are a couple of shoot-outs: one being the killing of Shoot-‘Em-Bill Hatfield, of Hatfield & McCoy’s fame, along with new history of the San Rafael Ranches, the old mail trail running between Green River and Hanksville, plus more.   It also has the story of the 2 young sheepherders who shot Sheriff Burns in 1894 in the mountains east of Castle Valley, but escaped to the East Desert and McCarty Canyon where they had a shootout with other marshals.  Those marshals were guided by Sid & Rod Swasey.   Those 2 sheepherders, who were just boys, escaped and lived their lives elsewhere–but no one knows where they went, or under what new names they must have used.  If their kinfolk know, they aren’t talking!  Also in this edition is an updated history of the Swasey family and their adventures in the San Rafael region.  All that research is the reason this book is a little late coming out.  Also, new to this edition are lots more hikes to rock art sites.

    KELSEY PUBLISHING

    Introducing the newest, most comprehensive, and simply best southwest technical canyoneering book ever produced by Michael Kelsey! In this all new second edition of Technical Slot Canyons of the Colorado Plateau you will find over 330 pages documenting over 110 different major technical canyons plus many, many smaller (though no less challenging) tributary canyons. Several of the canyons in this edition have never been published before. Divided into nine different geographic regions spread out through both Southern Utah and Northern Arizona (with a few in Western Colorado,) this book will provide many seasons worth of gear wearing, skin scrapping, heart pounding canyoneering adventure to any moderate to expert canyoneer. With over 370 amazing full color photographs this book is also an amazing canyoneering photo pictorial–if the books format was larger you would want to use it as a coffee table book in the off season.
     
    As point ofclarification and warning, this book is not for the beginner, novice, or out of shape canyoneer. This is a technical canyon guidebook. All canyons found in this guidebook require moderate to advanced climbing techniques and a majority of the canyons require the use of rope and or other specialized equipment to safety traverse them. For canyons that do not require a higher degree of climbing know-how or specialized gear see Kelsey’s Non-Technical Canyon Hiking Guide to the Colorado Plateau.
