Hiking Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks (FalconGuide)
by Erik Molvar, Tamara Martin
Amazon.com: A good guide provides more than just trail descriptions and a glance at an area's history. Erik Molvar takes that extra step, including sections on "Hiking in Arid Climates," "Following a Faint Trail," and "Avoiding a Narrow Canyon's Flash Flood," important topics considering the canyon land's unique terrain. After preparing his readers for their visit with directions and advice on obtaining park permits, Molvar gives descriptions of 56 hikes through areas such as the Kolob Terrace, Cedar Breaks, and the Markagunt High Country. Molvar's extensive experience is evident, and, given the area's special demands, his advice should prove valuable.
