Ouray Canyoning - second edition

Author: Michael Dallin
Language: English

 Michael Dallin's second edition of the Ouray canyoning guide book is GREAT!  Two hundred six pages of history, geology, geography and canyoning adventures in and around the town of Ouray is southwestern Colorado.

Ouray, Colorado has the highest quality alpine canyons in the United States. This intimate guide, the first for the area, explores the waterfalls, narrows and tumbling cascades found in the spectacular mountains that surround Ouray. Enjoy adventures ranging from short trail hikes to full day technical adventures in the most beautiful canyons in the country. Filled with historical, ecological and geological information, this guide offers a grand introduction to Ouray s special canyons. Once an oasis for the Utes, and later a center of silver and gold mining, Ouray has become a major destination for outdoor recreation and canyoning (also called canyoneering) in the West. Discover why Ouray is also a dream for canyoners and canyon lovers everywhere.

Pictures, topos and descriptions of about 32 wet canyon adventures. Unfortunately, Ouray has rather a short season, usually about Aug 1-Sept 15th, but it depends on snowpack. The canyons are fun, and Ouray is a great town to hang out in.  See you there!

Now in its second edition, this guide contains updated information on classic Ouray area canyon routes, and is expanded with many new, beautiful routes, never before in print.
