San Rafael Swell Off Road
Ed Helmick literally brought his new bride on board when they were married in 2007. “I do” for Janice meant four-wheeling in a bright yellow Jeep and helping Ed publish a book about their adventures for other off-road enthusiasts. At almost 300 pages, “San Rafael Swell Off Road: A Trail Guide to 42 Destinations for Automobiles, 4WD Trucks & ATVs” is the result of their desire to share their photos, maps and years of experience so readers will have a guide to the sights found in the San Rafael Swell area of Emery County. The desert area, ringed by small towns like Price, Green River and Castle Dale, is best visited in the milder fall and spring, according to the Helmicks. Every chapter includes helpful advice for novice or experienced explorers of the area. Definitely A trail guide worth reading.
