This dense volume from Falcon Press is your guide to exploring lesser-known reaches of the Four Corners area, known formally as the Colorado Plateau.
The book centers on a few major destinations in New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado (like Canyon de Chelly National Monument, the Chaco Culture Historical Park, and Utah's National Parks) and provides an almost endless stream of backroad adventures, smaller parks, and destinations to make your road trip into an adventure.
Like other Falcon Guides, the usual trail mileage and ratings, GPS coordinates, fee and agency contact information appear, but this book is enhanced with rich cultural and historical information about each site. Author Bill Haggerty's conversational tone evokes the mystery, scale, and sheer wonder that this region can inspire.
