The Grand Circle encompasses three states: Arizona, Colorado and Utah. It
also includes the Navajo Nation. Within this travel adventure lies the
greatest concentration of federal and state parks, recreation areas and
tribal lands in America.
From the newest (around 53 million years old) icing on the geological layer
cake at Bryce Canyon and Cedar Breaks to the 2-billion-year-old exposed rock
at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, our circle tour touches four different
bio-geographic zones. The span of these life zones reaches from the upper
pine, spruce and aspen forests of Bryce, Kaibab, Cedar Mountain, Boulder
Mountain and Mesa Verde down to the canyon bottom Sonoran zone as found in
southern Arizona and northwestern Mexico.
Through Grand Circle Adventure, the Story Behind the Scenery, you will
explore the amazing 900 mile quest revealing the most spectacular landforms
and vistas in America and, perhaps, the world. This book provide a truly
inspirational and comprehensive personal tour, second only to actually being
9x12, 48 pages, 59 color photos & 1 map.
