This has been a very busy spring. We've updated three guidebooks, reprinted another, and have two more under revision as I write this. The Grand Canyon, Canyonlands, and Middle Fork/Main Salmon guidebooks are new editions, and the Snake/Lower Salmon is a reprint with only minor updates. We are currently working on updating the San Juan and Upper Colorado guidebooks. You can find the major changes to be incorporated in the upcoming Fourth Edition of the San Juan under the errata section of the San Juan web page. Changes to the Upper Colorado guidebook will incorporate proposed management changes by the Bureau of Land Management for the 14-mile Pumphouse to State Bridge section of the river. This is one of the most heavily used sections of whitewater river in Colorado. Currently unpermitted, the BLM proposes to institute a self-issue permit system, prohibit camping except at 25 designated sites, and require each campsite to be reserved in advance through www.recreation.gov. We do not yet have release dates for either the San Juan or Upper Colorado, but the San Juan will be July at the earliest and September for the Upper Colorado.
When you subscribe to the blog, we will send you an e-mail when there are new updates on the site so you wouldn't miss them.
