Guide to the San Juan River
The San Juan is a great little desert river in southern Utah with lots of historical sites along the banks including Mormon pioneer tracks, mining paraphernalia and ancient rock art. The guide covers the 102 miles from Montezuma Creek, past Bluff and Mexican Hat to Clay Hills. It uses USGS topographic map backgrounds printed at their original scale, with additional details in an easy-to-read format. It shows campsite locations, rapids, scout points, river miles and other points of interest. The accompanying text describes all campsites with pull-in information, geological, botanical and historical points of interest. Maps and photographs are all in color, text is black and white. The guide is 8.5" x 14" spiral-bound to lay flat. The 34 pages are printed on tough waterproof and tear-resistant synthetic paper. There are many new photographs including a spectacular shot of the pour overs above Trimble Camp during the heavy rain of May 2009 (courtesy of Chelsea Crenshaw) and a great shot of the waterfalls below Clay Hills Crossing for everyone who wonders what would happen if they just kept on going... 978-0-9819395-3-7.
