    Utah’s Escalante country: a vast jigsaw puzzle of desert canyons, draws, defiles, gorges, slots, and washes demarcating upland expanses of slickrock, benches, and ridges, above which stand towers, pinnacles, and peaks.

    This guide features 37 major hikes designed to satisfy any canyoneer from novice to expert, including 20 in the new Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.

    Aside from the detailed route descriptions, Canyoneering 3 describes 14 road sections plus side roads to ensure time will not be lost finding a trailhead in this often confusing country. Also included are sections on geology, history, equipment, and technical canyoneering. Thoroughly researched, this is now the most comprehensive guide to the wonderland of the Escalante.

  • Hiking & Exploring Utah's San Rafael Swell: Michael Kelsey, 4th Edition


       
     

    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. 352 pages, 410 mostly-color photos.
