The guide is filled with short essays including one on what not to do while hiking and another on desert etiquette. Jumping is the major cause of accidents. Also some people need to be reminded that "do not disturb" applies to the desert as well.
The pictures are gorgeous and whet my appetite for another trip to the Grand Circle to see what I haven't seen before. The view of the hoodoos from Sunrise Point gave me the feeling that the desert went on forever, but I'd just got to go back and see the view from Grand View Point, Canyonlands.
This guide is not just about Zion National Park and Bryce Canyon. Most of the last 130 pages of this guide are about Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument, Capitol Reef National Park, Canyonlands National Park, Arches National Park, and Moab.
At the end of the guide are short chapters on history, geology, and the ecosystems of southern Utah. It was 1869 when John Wesley Powell descended the Green and Colorado Rivers to Yuma. His geological and ethnological work still "form the basis of what we know of southern Utah today."
