Each park offers visitors the dramatic scenery that invites exploration and discovery. In 50 Best Short Hikes in Utah’s National Parks, veteran hiking guide Greg Witt shares the best routes in each park, hikes that are both “must see” and accessible. Park visitors who are short on time will find this book to be the ideal traveling companion, quickly helping readers identify the hikes and sights, making the best use of their time and provide maximum enjoyment.

He brings to life the human history—prehistoric cliff-dwellers, native tribes, ranchers, farmers, loggers, miners, and outlaws—that adds to the color of the Colorado Plateau where these five parks are set.

Es sollte eine normale Bergtour werden, doch plötzlich fand sich Aron Ralston in der Falle: eingeklemmt zwischen einem 500 Kilo schweren Felsbrocken und einer Canyonwand. Ohne Hoffnung auf Rettung, weil niemand wusste, wo er war ... Nach fünf Tagen und Nächten voller Angst und Verzweiflung griff der 28-Jährige zu einer drastischen Maßnahme: Mit einem Taschenmesser amputierte er seinen eigenen Arm und rettete so sein Leben. Woher er die Kraft zum Durchhalten und den Mut für die unvorstellbare Befreiungstat genommen hat, davon erzählt Ralston in seinem packenden Bericht.
