Traces of Fremont

It’s been a while since I posted about a new book I got on my blog here, so I thought I would share my newest book since I was looking forward to it arriving today.

Traces of Fremont: Society and Rock Art in Ancient Utah by Steven R Simms and Francois Gohier

After flipping through it quickly, I can say I really like the photos that are in the book. Hopefully the text is good, too 🙂

Guide to Colorado Backroads & 4-Wheel-Drive Trails

Charles Wells just released his Third Edition of the Colorado 4×4 guidebook on Friday, and my copy just showed up in the mail 🙂 The quality of this book seems to be much higher than the previous versions, including the new hidden spiral binding. There should be at least a few new trails in here that I haven’t been on yet 😉

You can find more info on the book here. It’s on sale this week only for 20% off.

The Cliff Dwellings Speak

It’s been a while since I bought a book (I’ve actually been using the library lately), but when I found out this book by Beth and Bill Sagstetter just became available, I needed to get a copy to check it out. I have their other book ‘The Mining Camps Speak’ and enjoyed it a great deal, and figure this one will be just as good.

I received the book yesterday from Adler Publishing and flipped through it a little, and so far it looks like I won’t be disappointed. Once I finish ‘Cowboys and Caved Dwellers’ by Fred M. Blackburn (checked out from the library), I’ll dive into this one 🙂

Book, books and more books….

I’ve bought a couple of books since right before my Southern Utah Wanderings in October until now, that I haven’t posted up about yet, so I’ll take care of them all in this one post…

Before I left on my trip, I picked up two Kelsey guide books that I didn’t already have to bring along with me in case they would come in handy while I was in Southern Utah….gotta be prepared 🙂

Boater’s Guide to Lake Powell by Michael Kelsey

Hiking and Exploring the Paria River by Michael Kelsey

While I was in Escalante, I picked up a local book called “Advised them to Call the Place Escalante” by Jerry C. Roundy

When I arrived back home to Grand Junction, I stumbled across this book…

Grand Junction Trails and Camping Guide by Nattana Johnson

After I bought my new pair of snowshoes I found Cross-Country Skiing & Snowshoeing Ouray County by Jorg Angehrn on sale locally and picked it up to hopefully use this winter.

Finally, last month, I stopped at my favorite book store, Back of Beyond Books, while I was in Moab and got yet another book in the Canyon Country series.

Dinosaur Tracks and Trackers by F.A. Barnes

New Photography Books

When I ordered my new wide angle lens last week, I also go two books on photography that I have not been able to put down since I got them. These two books contain a lot of great info that will be very helpful to me. I highly recommend them!

Understanding Photography Field Guide by Bryan Peterson

Photographing the Southwest: Volume 1 – Southern Utah

Hopefully I can greatly improve my photography skills over the coming year 🙂
