Reviews - What do customers think about Backcountry Adventures Colorado (Backcountry Adventures)?

An ideal and highly recommended reference for scenic drives  Sep 3, 2008
Colorado is a vacationers paradise offering a variety of outdoor experiences and adventures for every season of the year. The collaborative work of Peter Massey, Jeanne Wilson, and Angela Titus, "Backcountry Adventures Colorado" is a 568-page compendium of detailed and reliable information showcases 143 of Colorado's best scenic back roads and four-wheel drive trails that can well serve to plan itineraries ranging from day trips, to week-end excursions, to week-long holiday adventures exploring what Colorado has to offer away from the usual tourist destinations. From ghost towns, to forgotten mines and mill workings, to old railroad and stage lines, "Backcountry Adventures Colorado truly lives up to its title with 'user friendly' and profusely illustrated directions. Enhanced with town histories, plant and animal information, driving directions that include GPS coordinates, and trails rated for degree of difficulty, mileage, and driving time, "Backcountry Adventures Colorado" is ideal for the non-specialist general reader and is illustrated with 924 photographs and 152 four-color topographic trail maps. "Backcountry Adventures Colorado" is an ideal and highly recommended reference for scenic drives -- and would serve as an excellent model for developing similar travel guides for other states.
Awesome Guidebook with tons of pics and GREAT adventures!!  Jul 22, 2008
Out of all the choices you have for the topic of exploring Colorado, this is ultimately the BEST guidebook you can find!! I was totally blown over by how much detail that was included! The color photos in the book (literally hundreds) are great and just flipping through the book made me want to start planning my trip right away! Whether you have an SUV or a 4x4, the scenic drives in this book take you to ghost towns and all kinds of interesting destinations in Colorado's backcountry. You get to see photos of what the old towns looked like when they were still standing and the authors give some cool background history on the mining camps too. There is even a field guide so you can identify the wildflowers and animals in the areas you travel to. All in all, this book blows the competition right out of the park!!
