[cdt-l] Cathedral in the Desert: A Thanksgiving Trip Report

Brian, there are at least three books to help plan a trip:

1.	Rudi Lambrechtse, 1985, Hiking the Escalante
2.	Steve Allen,1997 Canyoneering 3:  Loop Hikes in Utah's Escalante
3.	Ron Adkison, 1998, Hiking Grand Staircase-Escalante & the Glen
Canyon Region


I used Lambrechtse to hike from the town of Escalante to Lake Powell, a
hike of about 90-100 miles as well as for some of the side canyons.
I've also used Allen's Loop Hikes, including the Boulder Mail
Trail/Bowington Road trails and some of the slot canyons.  Both provide
good planning aides.  There is also an information center in Escalante
staffed by Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management personnel-a very
good source for information with all trails marked on topos with notes
regarding dropoffs, pools, etc.

loved the report and pictures, Paul. Made me envious from a slightly wet
and dark scottish winter! Is there much info available for planning
trips around escalante or do you just buy maps and explore?
