Guide to the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon: Lees Ferry to South Cove
Do you want a Grand Canyon guidebook written by boaters for boaters?
Tom Martin, author of Day Hikes from the River, and Duwain Whitis, publisher of RiverMaps map books, have teamed up to write the definitive guidebook. This is the only guidebook to the Canyon with USGS topographic map backgrounds printed at their original scale, with additional details in an easy-to-read format. It is also the only guide with maps extending to South Cove in Lake Mead. Each map shows campsite locations, rapids, scout points, river miles, and other points of interest. The accompanying text describes all campsites on the park inventory (and some extras), with campsite pull-in information, geological, botanical, and historical points of interest. Maps are in color. Text and photographs are black and white. The guide is 8.5 x 14 spiral-bound to lay flat. The 120 pages are printed on tough waterproof and tear-resistant synthetic paper.
The mileage has been established by the Grand Canyon Research and Monitoring Center, using the most up-to-date measuring techniques. The new mileage of the last few editions deviates from the old by up to a mile in certain areas.
Recommended by most Grand Canyon and Colorado River guides and rafting companies, this book has won a NOBA (National Outdoor Book Award)!
