Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The goal of the Scenic Driving series is to provide readers with details of both natural and human history in the area that each drive covers. The audience for the Scenic Driving series is interested in natural features that they can see from the road, short hikes accessible from the scenic driving route, geologic features, the flora and fauna that inhabit the area they are driving through, and brief accounts of human history.

Colorado is a state of majestic landscapes dominated by expansive plains, lofty mountain peaks, dramatic canyons, and broad valleys. This guidebook offers travel and historical information for 30 visually stunning routes, from Pawnee National Grassland of the Great Plains to Rocky Mountain National Park, the San Juan Mountains, and the deserts of the Colorado Plateau. Information on camping, services, special attractions, and historical points of interest make this book perfect for planning day trips and weekend outings.

Synopsis:

This guidebook offers travel and historical information for 30 visually stunning routes, from Pawnee National Grassland of the Great Plains to Rocky Mountain National Park, the San Juan Mountains, and the deserts of the Colorado Plateau.

Synopsis:

Pack up the car and enjoy thirty separate drives through the soaring mountains, broad valleys, and endless plains of Colorado. This indispensable highway companion maps out day trips that explore the Centennial State. You'll travel highways and back roads from the Rocky Mountains and Mesa Verde National Park to the Great Sand Dunes and the Santa Fe Trail. Discover the wonders of Colorado's multiethnic history, ecological and topographical diversity, and magnificent beauty. Along the way stop and explore long-deserted Anasazi Indian cities, powder-packed playgrounds for skiing nirvana, ghost towns and modern communities that retain a pioneer-era flavor, and numerous historic sites and museums detailing Colorado's colorful past.

Inside you'll find: individual itineraries from 9 miles to 236 miles in length; in-depth descriptions of attractions along the way; maps outlining each route; historical information and suggested side trips.
