Oh, sorry. Charles Wells writes "the" books for offroading in AZ, CO, UT and CA (I don't have any of the CA books yet, but they look good). He personally comes down and runs the trails and does the write-up.
Last summer we went to Moab the first time for us and the others, and we ran 14 of the trails up there with only his book as the guide. We didn't have any problems.
He recently updated the AZ
book and included Turkey Creek. If you look at the link, one of the pictures is of Area 3 - and you can see Turkey Creek (Trail 32). He doesnít' show the write up for Turkey Creek, but does for Backway to Crown King. You can see the details and hints he includes, the GPS coordinates, and pictures. He does a good job.
I always get my books directly from him because I like the spiral binding. You can open the book all of the way and fold it back on itself with the spiral binding. I have noticed that on the newer books they come with spiral binding but they now include a cardboard piece to hide the spiral binding. I like to open the book back on itself so I cut off the cardboard piece and it functions properly.
I havenít met him personally, but I have talked with others that have met him and they say heís a great guy. When he goes out to do an area he contacts the locals and asks who wants to do the trails with him so he can get better information on the trail and see the trouble spots for various types of Jeeps. I know some of the people in the pictures in the new AZ book. Unfortunately, I wasnít able to go out when he was down the last time.
Anyway, I wouldnít hesitate to recommend his books to anyone.
