The RiverMaps Guide to the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon is a must-have guidebook for your trip down the Grand. It's durable and waterproof with USGS topo maps and excellent descriptions of river features. This 7th edition book covers the entire river, from Glen Canyon to the South Cove take out on Lake Mead in a spiral-bound format with full-color relief-shaded topographical maps on the right side and complete text descriptions on the facing page. The topo maps are the same scale as the original USGS maps. The relief shading of the topo maps gives you a much better perspective of the terrain than the original USGS maps. The contour lines and accurate river shape enhances your ability to keep track of where you are. Discover excellent mile-by-mile information on rapids, campgrounds, geological features, historical sites, and reference points. The high-quality waterproof paper stands up to the soaking it's going to get! The book lists numerous side hikes and interesting features away from the river. All photos in this edition are in full color. Also includes info pages on frequently asked questions about boating the river, Grand Canyon geology, archaeology, resource protection, and plants found in the Canyon. Between the 7th and 6th edition, we added 8 more pages—the stretch from Glen Canyon to Lees Ferry plus more geology labeling—and we also did a new “Read as You Run Format”.
