This is one of the best guide books about the Southwest. The author tells you how to save money, the best hikes in each park, the best places to eat and stay. He tells you where to buy groceries, find water, get free Wi-Fi, shop for quality souvenirs, go swimming, and all sorts of other invaluable bits of info that a traveler would most likely miss. This book is worth its weight in gold! Traveling has gotten expensive and a trip to the Southwest involves planes and automobiles. So, I am grateful that the author is always trying to save me money throughout the book. I was immediately drawn to the “Save Money” section that appears at the end of each day’s itinerary where Mr. Carr points out all sorts of free and fun things to do in each stop. Free is good!

I really like the idea of a guidebook that just cuts to the chase and tells you the best things to do. The author lived in Canyonlands for many years and knows the area like his backyard. He takes all of the guesswork out and allows you to just enjoy the fun ride. And the “Best Things To Do” sections of the book are great. I especially like all of the little free museums that are highlighted each day because I’m really interested in this forgotten part of the country and its rich history. What can be better than saving money and learning about the local culture?

The “Insiders Tips” and "Best Of" sections of the book were what caught my interest. I like the idea of getting little known tips from a person familiar with where I’m traveling. I always get frustrated by guidebooks when they give me a long list of restaurants where I can eat in a town I have never visited before. What the heck do I know? And every time I visit a national park I look at the park brochure and there is a long list of hikes with cool sounding names. They all look like they might be fun, but I have no idea which ones are the best. So, I end up picking ones at random, usually based on length and difficulty, only to find out later that I should have taken another trail that was better. I like the fact the the author of this book has already eaten in all of the restaurants and hiked all of the trails in each park and knows which ones are the best. So, that’s all he gives you, just the best things to do and see. And that’s all I want to know. Thanks for making it simple.

Steve Carr & I spent over a decade exploring Canyonlands together. We went everywhere between Telluride and Vegas. There isn’t a better Southwest guide on the planet. And Steve will always show you a good time.
