Hiking and Exploring Utah's Henry Mountains and Robbers Roost
About this Item
In Michael Kelsey's third edition of
Hiking & Exploring Utah's Henry Mountains and Robbers Roost
you will find over 280 color packed pages of slot canyon and canyon adventures, mountain hikes and local lore and history.
This book covers the Henry Mountains Region to southeastern Utah. It's not a big area but it has many contrasts, so there's lots to see. The region extends from Hanksville and State Highway 24 in the north to Lake Powell on the southeast. On the west is the waterpocket fold and Capitol Reef National Park. On the east, the arbitrary boundaries for this book are the orange cliffs, which look down on the Maze district of Canyonlands National Park.
Inside these boundaries lay some of the driest deserts in the state, but also some of the deepest, most isolated, and beautiful canyons in Utah. Also included within the boundaries of the region is the relatively high mesa land known as the Robbers Roost Country. In a 15 to 20 year period beginning in the early 1880's this country, with its wild and wooly canyons offered hiding places for men who were always looking over their shoulder. It was the part time home for Robert LeRoy Parker, otherwise known as Butch Casssidy.
