Overview

The Adventure Guide to the High Southwest packs a punch for adventurous travelers, offering the thrills and spills of the Four Corners region in fantastic detail. The mammoth canyons, vast deserts and haunting mountains of Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico offer a vast canvas on which to paint your own adventure.

Join Steve Cohen as he takes you river rafting, cross-country skiing, along rugged hiking trails to ruins and striking rock formations, and across fields of wildflowers to the most remote fishing holes. Touring options take you to Bandera Crater, Zuni Pueblo, Gallup, Chaco Canyon, Durango, Silverton, Ridgeway, the Lowry Ruins, Mesa Verde, Capitol Reef, Glen Canyon, Zion National Park, the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell, Sedona, Flagstaff and the Navajo Reservation & Hopiland. This is your guide to exploring this last great frontier, at your own pace and on your own terms. Visit campsites and cliff dwellings, barter for turquoise and silver at trading posts, discover the lore of the Navajos. The best local tour operators and backcountry outfitters are listed, along with telephone numbers, and a wealth of practical travel advice is here for the taking. Places to stay include Navajo-run hotels, B&Bs and resorts, while restaurant listings run the gamut from roadside cookouts to fine dining to out-of-the-way caf�s. Detailed maps and a complete index make navigation of the book and the region easy!
