Guide to the San Juan River
Guide to a Great Little Southwestern River In the same format as their very successful Guide to the Colorado River through Grand Canyon, authors Duwain Whitis and Tom Martin have teamed up again to write a new guidebook. 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 book 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 are in color, text and photos are 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.
