Book Review, Whitewater of the Southern Rockies

See also

Whitewater of the Southern Rockies by Evan Stafford and Kyle McCutchen is a must have for all Rocky Mountain whitewater enthusiasts. More than just a guidebook, this whitewater bible is filled with detailed descriptions of nearly every stretch of whitewater in the entire southern Rocky Mountains, spectacular artwork, detailed maps, and captivating first hand experiences by expert whitewater rafters and kayakers.

As a sports and adventure photographer, I have found this book to be an invaluable tool for finding put-ins, take-outs, locations and trails to the interesting rapids. There is also information about all the great whitewater festivals, parties, and cool places for rafters and river boaters to hang out and meet fellow paddlers.

Whitewater fans in five states, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah, and Wyoming will find fascinating detailed beta boxes on hundreds of rivers and creeks cascading through the mountain valleys and deserts of these beautiful western states. Outdoor adventurers of all kinds can make use of the maps and 300 pages of full page color photographs to locate exciting destinations on some of America's most beautiful waterways. Adventure book connoisseurs will enjoy the true life tales of harrowing adventures as expert paddlers are unexpectedly plunged into life and death peril.

The maps and descriptions in this book were used by this writer to discover numerous fabulous locations close to home that were previously only the subject of wishful dreams. I give this book five out of five stars and highly recommend it to all avid western waterway adventurers.
