Pack up the car and enjoy 28 drives through the scenic grandeur of the photographer's paradise, rock hound's nirvana, and geologist's dream world that is Utah. Offering more than 1,500 miles of riding pleasure, this indispensable highway companion maps out short trips for exploring the Beehive State's scenic byways and back roads. Discover Utah's long and vibrant history, myriad outdoor recreational activities, and breathtaking scenery--including the fantastic rock formations of the Colorado Plateau; the Middle Rocky Mountain region, Utah's northern mountain wonderland; and the forbidding yet fascinating Basin and Range region, with its treeless vistas, cracked earth, and huge dead sea. Along the way, stop and discover Native American rock art, picturesque small towns, canyon and alpine hiking trails, and the state's mining, Pony Express, and Mormon history.
