QUICKSAND AND BLUE SPRINGS Exploring the Little Colorado River Gorge
by Stephen West Cole


Welcome to the Little Colorado River Gorge
In May 2001, Stephen Cole and his brother hiked the Little Colorado River Gorge from the town of Cameron, Arizona to its confluence with the Colorado River, and out by way of the Beamer and Tanner trails in the Grand Canyon. He found the desert landscape so fascinating that he went back later to explore three remote side canyon routes which enter the chasm. There was very little written about the area then so here he shares some of his experiences and thoughts about it. The book is not meant to be a guide although we hope that anyone exploring the Gorge on foot or in an armchair will find it helpful.
176 pages, 5.5" x 8", softcover, 8 pages of color photos. 0-9674595-8-3.
