Deep in the Grand Canyon lies a place of unmatched beauty--a place where blue-green water cascades over fern-clad cliffs into travertine pools, where great blue heron skim canyon streams, and where giant cottonwoods and graceful willows thrive in the shade of majestic sandstone cliffs. Havasupai is a paradise enveloped in one of the earth's most rugged and parched landscapes.

Exploring Havasupai by author Greg Witt is the essential destination guide for those visiting the area. The updated guidebook is filled with insider tips, fascinating background, and essential information. It identifies many new hikes, mines, springs, and historical sites never before revealed in a Grand Canyon or Havasupai guidebook. Details on canyon geology, weather patterns, and the unique flora and fauna add depth to a hiker's experience.

Exploring Havasupai includes detailed maps, trail descriptions, stunning full-color photographs, and intriguing historical insights. This is the must-have guide for canyon visitors, whether they are arriving by helicopter, on horseback, or on foot.

About the Author
Greg Witt's journeys have taken him to every corner of the globe. He has guided mountaineering expeditions in the Alps and Andes and paddled wild rivers in the Americas. He has dropped teams of adventurers into golden slot canyons; trudged through deep jungles in Africa, Central America, and Asia; and guided archaeological expeditions across the parched Arabian Peninsula. His passion for adventure has always focused on sharing his experience with others. Following degrees from the University of California and Brigham Young University, he had an early career in human resources management; but Greg prefers high adventure to the high-rise, so decades ago he traded his wingtips for hiking boots and has never looked back. Some weeks, Greg hikes more miles than he drives, which means he wears out his boots faster than he wears out his tires. He has crossed the Grand Canyon on foot more than a dozen times, climbed Colorado's three highest peaks in three days, and each summer as a guide in the Alps he hikes more than 700 miles and gains nearly 100,000 vertical feet of elevation--the equivalent of climbing Everest 9 times. Now he leads readers on the most breathtaking hikes and exciting outdoor adventures on the globe. He comes ready to discuss the geology, history, archaeology, weather patterns, culture, and flora and fauna of the exciting locales he loves. His other titles include 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Salt Lake City and 50 Best Short Hikes in Utah's National Parks. Greg's research and exploration continue to uncover the unknown. If you join him, you can be guaranteed a phenomenal adventure peppered with the unexpected.
