As is the colorful and geological chaotic White Pockets. Buckskin slot canyon is the largest slot in the U.S. North Rim Grand Canyon is unique from the South Rim as it is not crowded. The western end, Tuweep, has the most dramatic view of the Colorado River.Kaibab Forest offers alternate views of the canyon that is really an extension of the national park's overlooks. Unlike Grand Canyon National Park trails, Kaibab Forest has a multitude of uncrowded hikes down to the river. Ancient Indian rock art (petroglyphs and pictographs) are abundant. The Arizona Strip is the most isolated area within continental U.S. almost void of human penetration. About 4,000 miles (6,436 km) of remote barren roads challenge exploration within an area that is slightly larger than the state of Massachusetts or one-half the size of Switzerland. Within that vast area is Lees Ferry Colorado River crossing. It is the history of this area from Mormon pioneers to gold seekers. Our book is a combination of driving, hiking, mountain-biking and other tours such as rafting and horseback riding. There are suggestions of what to see and do for each tour. Mile-By-Mile Location - Your exact location is known by using a meticulous identification of MPs (posts along the road indicating mileage) located at each mile (1.6 km) on every improved road. Where those MPs are not available, we use actual miles from a designated reference point. Where applicable, Global Positioning data (GPS) is supplied to complement walking tours in remote areas. Using this collection of information, you will always know your exact location. We are sure this book will make your vacation more memorable and successful.Table of Contents (Page number at end)Trip 1 - From St. George, Utah to Lee's Ferry, Arizona 6Tour 1-01 - Historic Lee's Ferry 20Tour 1-02 - Rachael's Pool & Bonelli Springs 42Tour 1-03 - Dominguez-Escalante Expedition. 51Tour 1-04 - Buffalo Ranch & Buck Farm Overlook 52Tour 1-05 - California Condors 54Tour 1-06 - Town of Fredonia 55Tour 1-07 - Tuweep Park and Toroweap Overlook from Fredonia 57Tour 1-08 - From Tuweep to St. George 69Tour 1-09 - Tuckup Canyon Hiking 71Tour 1-10 - Pipe Springs 75Tour 1-11 - Colorado City 78Trip 2 - Vermilion Cliffs National Monument Introduction 82Tour 2-1 - Paria Ranger Station and Camping 86Tour 2-2 - House Rock Valley Road (#700 & #1065) 88Tour 2-2-1 - Buckskin Gulch Trailhead 94Tour 2-2-1-A Buckskin Gulch Middle Trail 96Tour 2-2-2 - The Wave 1, 2 and 3 99Tour 2-2-3 - Paria Plateau's Historic Ranches 103” To Hancock Springs (Jacob's Pool) Trailhead 113” To Bonelli Springs and Ancient Indian Ruins 115Tour 2-2-4 - White Pocket Tour 116Trip 3 - From Jacob's Lake To Grand Canyon 118Tour 3-01 - North Rim Grand Canyon Park 123Trip 4 - Kaibab Forest, Overlooks & Tours 147Tour 4-01 - Fredonia to Kaibab Forest Tours 173Tour 4-02 - Jacobs Lake to Road #22 178Tour 4-03 - Snake Gulch & Slide Canyon 180Tour 4-04 - To Brow (Powell) Monument 181Tour 4-05 - To Jumpup Cabin & Trail 41 182Tour 4-06 - To Sowats, Indian Hollow, Crazy Jug and Monument Pt. 182Tour 4-07 - To Parissawampitts, & Timp Points Mountain Bike Trail 185Tour 4-08 - To Fire, Swamp and Sublime Overlooks 186Tour 4-09 - To Marble Pt., Saddle Mt. and Nankoweap Trailhead 188Trip 5 - Highway 89 from Paria Ranger Station to Kanab, UT. 191Tour 5-01 - Toadstool Formations 193Tour 5-02 - Paria Ghost Town 195Tour 5-03 - Town of Kanab and Local Tours 198Tour 5-04 - Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park 210Tour 5-05 - Moqui Cave 216Tour 5-06 - Best Friends Animal Sanctuary 216Trip 6 - Wupatki National Monument (Ancient Indian) & Sunset Crater 218

The defining battles from the history of Middle-earth are presented in a single, entertaining volume. The history of J. R. R. Tolkien's fictional world of Middle-earth is filled with epic battles in an ongoing struggle between good and evil. The Battles of Tolkien recounts many of the greatest conflicts over thousands of years, from the earliest skirmishes of the Valarian Ages to the defining battles in the War of the Ring. Insightful commentary by Tolkien scholar David Day discusses how the people, tactics, and weapons influenced the outcome of each battle, and also how the legends of Middle-earth relate to the real-world mythology on which Tolkien based his famous literary creation. Maps and full-color illustrations help bring this rich universe to life, making it an invaluable reference book for Tolkien fans of all ages.
