4 Utah Travel Guides - Great Holiday Gifts
Travel Guides by Christine Balaz, based in Salt Lake City, with photos by the author
This lens will provide information on four Utah destination travel guides that will be great gifts for family or friends traveling to the State of Utah in the USA. These guides were written by Christine Balaz and include photos taken by the author.
Ms. Balaz graduated from Dartmouth College in New Hampshire after growing up in Bozeman, Montana. Now living in Salt Lake City, she previously lived in London and Berlin.
I have no connection to Ms. Balaz. However, I do spend two weeks in the late spring and two weeks in the fall in Southern Utah visiting family, so have a keen interest in visitor and traveler issues in the State of Utah. As I write this, I am visiting near Capital Reef National Park.
The image of one of her books is available as fair use to promote the book.

Amazon Spotlight Personal Review - Utah
This Explorer's Complete Guide covers each of the Five Regions of the State of Utah and so provides the interested travel planner with excellent background and overview information on the distinct characteristics to be found in each region.
Armed with the information found here, one may wish to consult one of the other guides suggested here for more detailed information on the specific locales of interest.
Amazon Spotlight Personal Review - Backroads and Byways of Utah
This guide is most useful for planning day trips and week end excursions. It covers the entire State of Utah from St. George to Provo, from Moab to the Great Salt Lake and much of interest in between.
I have personally enjoyed the Escalante to Capital Reef tour she presents.
Amazon Spotlight Personal Review - Salt Lake City and More
This guide focuses on the Utah High Country in the northern part of the state and includes the primary skiing regions among other attractions.
The Wasatch Region offers a distinctive variety of activities from winter sports to theater from which the visitor may choose.
Amazon Spotlight Personal Review - Zion, Bryce and More
Although his travel guide is titled Zion and Bryce Canyon it includes other Southern Utah National Parks and destinations specifically Capital Reef National Park - which I can see out the window across the deck from where I am sitting as I write this!
It also includes information useful to the hiker and visitor to Arches, Grand Staircase, Canyonlands and Moab, with planning guides, overviews and maps.
