Overview

Known for its canyons and breathtaking views, its whitewater rivers and Wild West outposts, its tranquil lakes and fantastic rock formations, Utah is one of the most beautiful and varied places on the planet. Backroads of Utah takes you to every corner of this spectacular state, from Dinosaur National Monument to Rainbow Bridge, from historic squares to outlaw hideaways, from the vaulting natural arches of Arches National Park to the exquisite formations in Timpanogos Cave.

Utah, home to five national parks, seven national monuments, and six national forests (as well as forty state parks and an extensive system of scenic byways), has something for every traveler. And whether youre seeking adventure or the quiet contemplation of nature, an immersion in history or a taste of culture, the backroad adventures charted in this book will take you where you want to go.

Theresa Husariks inviting text and lovely color photographs offer a thorough overview of Utahs landscapes, its legacy, and its people. With detailed travel directions and maps, as well as entertaining sidelights from the states history, this handy guide to Utahs justly famous attractions and lesser-known gems makes a perfect companion for any traveler in the Beehive State.

Editorial Reviews

Utah wows us all. The Beehive State is the home to 5 national parks, 6 national forests, 7 national monuments, and 40 state parks, but even that roster hardly does justice to its breathtaking canyons, rock formations, and hideaways. Theresa Husarik's Backroads of Utah offers a dazzling overview of the state's natural wonders, complete with descriptions, detailed travel directions, maps, and photos. A valuable resource for tourists and residents alike.
