The 140,000-square-mile Colorado Plateau is home to our nation’s highest concentration of national parks, monuments, wilderness areas and accessible public lands. Here, you will find an endless bounty of wild, stunning landscapes. “Discovering the Colorado Plateau” explores this four-corners region of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah with breathtaking photography. You’ll also find in-depth descriptions of the area’s geology, geography and history. It includes signature activities such as hiking, bicycling, river rafting and hot air balloon rides to encapsulate the best each locale has to offer. By purposefully shifting the focus away from spectacular, yet over-loved national parks such as Zion, Arches, Bryce, Capitol Reef and Grand Canyon, this book introduces readers to the various public lands and protected areas that remain as exciting and wonderful as any of the major parks. “Discovering the Colorado Plateau” is both a practical guide with great information and imagery, and a true celebration of America’s most beautiful – and endangered – public lands. It includes chapters on the controversial Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments.
