Covering the ancient physiographic Colorado Plateau, the region today known colloquially as the Four Corners encompasses eight national parks, ten national monuments and a national recreation area. To hike and explore the southwest canyon country is to experience a world unlike any other, and award-winning author Brian Lane places his nearly twenty years experience hiking throughout this area to good use in detailing trails, permits and logistics, safety concerns, proper gear, wildlife and geology, and contact information for local services. The book includes detailed maps and trailhead directions, as well as beautiful color photographs which will kindle the desire to trek this area yourself.
