England's Gilbert K. Chesterton (1874 - 1936) wrote: The whole object of travel is not to set foot on a foreign land; it is at last to set foot on one's own country as a foreign land.
After decades of grateful immersion in this unique God-crafted beauty, we have compiled our personal knowledge of these major parks that form the majority of the Grand Circle Adventure.
This approximate 260 page book visits the parks listed on the front cover. These are detailed in Table of Contents below.
Book Tour Content
This book is a combination of driving, walking, mountain biking and other tours such as rafting and horseback riding. There are suggestions of what to see and do for each tour. We also identify free dry-camp (no facilities) sites and Hostels to reduce travel expense.
This printed book has less content than its equivalent Kindle E-Book to significantly reduce printing cost. The removed content was isolated to extended tours and selected appendixes, not prime tour data. Also, all photographs were converted to black and white.
The E-book version retains full color photographs and all data. Thus, we suggest also using E-Book's approximate 185 photographs, 270 Internet data sites and 70 video sites of roads and trails to enhance your home trip planning and the print book for convenient road and backcountry travel.
Combined, both are equivalent to a couple of Big Mac hamburger meal cost.
Embedded in this land is the enduring history of pioneers who settled here when it was barren except for native Indian occupation. In 1848, when the Mormons arrived from eastern U.S. and England, Utah belonged to the Mexican government who inherited it from Spain by revolution. It was raw land. After a war with Mexico, the land became U.S. property. That lured more eastern pioneers from gold prospectors and outlaws to vast herds of cattle ranchers.
Mile-By-Mile and GPS Location
Your exact location is accomplished by using a meticulous identification of mile posts (post along the road indicating mileage) located at each mile (1.6 km) on every improved road. Where those mileposts are not available, we use actual miles from a designated reference point.
Where applicable, Global Positioning Satellite data (GPS) is supplied to complement walking tours in remote areas. Using this collection of information, you will always know your exact location.
Book organization starts with the Table of Contents. Under each of the major Trips, there are Tours and subtours. For example , Trip 1, From St. George, Utah to Zion. Below that Trip, there are 12 individual tours and one subtour. Two appendixes are crucial to understanding travel location and tour sites.
Appendix 1 - Road maps for each trip.
Appendix 5 - Tour sites and location maps. Use these maps as a guide for each Trip and applicable sub-tours. Most of these road maps were created by GPS tracking; therefore, very accurate.
We are sure this book will make your vacation more memorable and successful. http://www.southutahparks.com
