marginal, dated at best

Comments about Desolation River Guide Book:

Fine for background information. Sorely lacking in practical information about running the river. No marking or description of camps. Marking of rapids but no description. The guide also reads from top to bottom as opposed to bottom to top, how you would naturally read a river map. RiverMaps are the way to go.

Comments about Desolation River Guide Book:

This is an interesting river guide, full of information. However it shows rapid locations, but does not describe the rapids. At the time that we ran the Sand Wash to Swanseys stretch, the rapids were pretty straight forward, read and run, but a few rapids are definitely more difficult and deserving of a rating and/or description.
