  • More About This Book
Blessed with a magnificent landscape, Utah also abounds with secrets and peculiarities. Most are unaware that the Beehive State has its own rocky Noah’s Ark or a hidden hoodoo Chinatown. Many have never seen a peak reminiscent of an Egyptian pyramid or visited Pando, one of the world’s most ancient living things. Off-the-beaten-path wonders have fascinated Utah natives Lynn Arave and Ray Boren all their lives. Both authors spent decades seeking out the overlooked, uncovering the unusual and separating fact from legend. Join them as they outline the state’s most unique expeditions, from its lowest point at Beaver Dam Wash and to its highest peaks and the intriguing locales in between.
