Not long ago, the only way to explore Utah was by backroad. While the Beehive State now has one of the fastest-growing populations in the West, Utah is still full of off-the-beaten-path places that offer views of breathtaking mountain peaks, vast dry desert landscapes, glowing redrock arches, and signs that dinosaurs and ancient peoples once lived here.
Tracing the history of Mormon pioneers, mountain men, and even the movie business in Utah, this book also takes you along the old Pony Express route, follows the Colorado River to glorious Lake Powell, and heads to rugged lands that will test your sense of off-roading adventure. With more than 120 full-color photos of Utah's best scenery, as well as interesting historical archive photos, Backroads of Utah truly showcases the many inspiring wonders of this state.
