This book has been out for a long time but is still an excellent resource for learning about the landscape of Utah, one of the most amazing, varied, and beautiful landscapes in the United States. Sure, there are amazing sights in Alaska (have seen some of them) and in Hawaii (seen one or two of those as well, but so much of what is visible here in Utah is also incredibly accessible - for everyone. National parks, recreation areas, wilderness, so much splendor and ancient places you can get very close to - staggering. And this book helps you discover so much of the eons of development, the forces that made these amazing places, and why they look the way they do today. It covers the sights and in-depth information that you will see along all our major highways and roads across the state of Utah. I foud mine here on Amazon, a used book, great price, but worth a lot more in value.

I am now addicted to Halka Chronic's Roadside Geology books. I read ROADSIDE GEOLOGY OF ARIZONA first, because I live in Arizona. But I love Utah's weird geology as much as I love Arizona's, so ROADSIDE GEOLOGY OF UTAH was the next read in the stack. It is a wonderful overview of the forces that shaped the region from the Precambrian Period to the present. Travelers who gaze from the car window as they drive the highways of Utah can satisfy their curiosity about the formations they see on the way.

Yes, I am a Geology nerd. I am fascinated with the "bones of the world," and I find this book extrememly satisfying. If you plan to take a trip in Utah, take this one with you.

I'd recommend a little study of geology, and the formations found in Utah before hitting the road with this book. KC Publications 48 page glossy color "Colorado Plateau", which I found at one of the National Parks, gives you a great introduction to a good fraction of Utah and shows the positions of the formations along with a time line. If you are a layman at geology, unless you prepare, you will get dizzy with references to formations aided only by black and white pictures. The lack of color illustrations is puzzling when color means so much in identification of rocks in the area. If you can easily recognize formations, this book is a great aid as you travel.

This is an entertaining book to have in the car as you drive around Utah and look at the many, various and stunning rock formations there. Surprisingly there is not a lot said (except for brief Chapter IV - just 30 pages out of 300) about all the extraordinary National Parks - but the roadside chapters are easy to use. What this book also really lacks is any color pictures!

These books are a must have for my road trips, and Utah is and incredibly fascinating place geologically speaking. (Arches National Park is a must see btw)
  • Keel
excellent!
  • Trex
I bought this guide and the one for Colorado. Whenever I have a long drive, I check the roads on my trip against the ones listed in the book. Then I stop at the places spotlighted in the book, often road cuts, to learn about the geology of that area. This is a series of geology books for many Western states. Highly recommending for budding geologists.
An interesting read but some of it seems a little dated.
