Backroads of Utah
My first published book! I did both the writing (30,000 words and photography (125+ photos).
Not long ago, the only way to explore Utah was by backroad. While the Beehive State now has one of the fastest-growing populations in the West, Utah is still full of off-the-beaten-path places that offer views of breathtaking mountain peaks, vast dry desert landscapes, glowing red-rock arches, and signs that dinosaurs and ancient peoples once lived here.
In Backroads of Utah, longtime resident Theresa A. Husarik leads you on thirty driving tours—complete with maps and route directions—to the state's most scenic corners. You'll visit all five of the state's stunning national parks—Bryce Canyon, Zion, Capitol Reef, Arches, and Canyonlands—as well as abandoned Old West mining towns, majestic mountains that are home to the greatest snow on earth, and the Great Salt Lake's largest island.
Tracing the history of Mormon pioneers, mountain men, and even the movie business in Utah, this book also takes you along the old Pony Express route, follows the Colorado River to glorious Lake Powell, and heads to rugged lands that will test your sense of off-roading adventure. With more than 120 full-color photos of Utah's best scenery, as well as interesting historical archive photos, Backroads of Utah truly showcases the many inspiring wonders of this state.
