Format: Paperback
We are planning a trip to Colorado, Wyoming and Montana in June. Without this book we wouldn't have known where to start. There is a handy section at the beginning of the book; 'Highlights', which helped us narrow down the choices of places we really had to see in a short period of time. Most valuable of all is the authors honesty about which parks and areas are crowded and over-subscribed, and advice on where to go to enjoy much more secluded and equally as beautiful natural areas. It's written with a good sense of humour; many comments made me laugh out loud. But as well as that a very serious vein regarding environmental threats posed by tourists, and how to 'tread' carefully whilst enjoying the best scenery the USA has to offer.

A great travel guide if like us you are planning a self drive holiday in the Rocky Mountains. As they no longer publish this book a second hand copy was just as good.

Superb! 4 Jun. 2007

I'm so glad I stuck with Lonely Planet (LP) for my 4 day trip to Colorado where we covered everything from Rockies to Colo. Springs, Denver, Boulder and also did rafting and hiking.

This book is great and lists everything that you need. Accomodations, maps, rafting companies, tourist traps, restaurants, etc. Very nice, exactly what you would expect from LP. Although I haven't tried other states yet, I'm looking forward to making a trip to Yellowstone soon ...

Thanks lonely planet!!

Cons: In case you are new to the lonely planet style of writing, let me warn you that if you are looking for a book which is heavily edited and proofread, then you will be disappointed. This lonely planet book is written in a style which is reminiscent of the old LP books - it seems more like a brain dump of everything the writers encountered. They then tried to put most of the things under appropriate headings and did a fair job. This is what I expect from a 'pack and go' book like LP so it works for me. YMMV.
