The Rio Grande, A River Guide to the Geology and Landscapes of Northern New Mexico, is a great companion for anyone boating the 153 miles between Lasauses, Colorado and the Cochiti Dam.
  • Eleven different stretches of this river section are covered in great detail.
  • Lavishly illustrated throughout, this full-color guide is packed with information and photos on geography, hydrology, safety, river management, history, rock art and more.
  • The finely detailed maps show terrain relief and topography, rapids, campsites, side hikes, trails, etc.
  • While aimed primarily at river runners, it's an invaluable resource for hikers, anglers, cyclists, day trippers, historians, and casual visitors.
  • In addition to being an avid river runner, author Paul Bauer is a geologist. He gives you expert information on river corridor - info that many river guides lack.
  • Winner of the National Outdoor Book Award in the Outdoor Adventure Guidebook Category.
  • The book is printed on waterproof paper and spiral bound for easy page turning.

            One of the best guides I have ever seen. Excellent river maps, descriptions of the rapids, and awesome photos by "Atom Crawford". And its small enough to pack on a river trip! Bonus: It's waterproof!

                Comments about The Rio Grande Guide Book:

                This must be the most detailed river guide book on the market. Certainly for the upper Rio Grande. I have consulted various river guide books and online resources while "scouting" previous runs in the past. None come close to the detail and depth of information provided in Pat Bauer's "The Rio Grande".

                Each section of the river is broken down to a series of detailed, color topo maps with great descriptions of local conditions, camping, river conditions, and hikes.

                Well-made, spiral-bound, and waterproof. Done.

                Long needed guide to NM upper Rio Grande

                By Desert Canoeist

                from Albuquerque

                Verified Buyer

                Comments about The Rio Grande Guide Book:

                This engaging guidebook is small enough to haul on the river, lovely enough to leave on the coffee table, and helpful enough to describe both the geologic and hydrologic forces as it provides a long-needed river guide to the upper Rio Grande from southern Colorado through Cochiti lake. Clear maps, detailed river descriptions, and complimentary photos, art, and charts makes this obvious labor of love and accurate knowledge a must for anyone running the Rio Grande in NM.
