Field Guide to the Sandia Mountains

Dec 09, 2008

Field Guide to the Sandia Mountains
edited by Robert Julyan and Mary Stuever.

Each year over 2 million visitors to New Mexico's Sandia Mountains enjoy more than 100 miles of trails, hiking, climbing, running, biking, skiing, and birding, as well as viewing the mountains from hang gliders and hot air balloons. This guide will assist visitors in discovering the diverse natural features of the Sandias.

Field Guide to the Sandia Mountains includes sections on ecology, including weather and fire, geology, flora (grasses, flowers, trees) and fauna (arthropods, reptiles and amphibians, birds, mammals), and recreational opportunities. Plant keys and fauna checklists add to the book's features.

Rather than a comprehensive field guide, the selections offer the most commonly encountered species in each category, presenting information on just over 100 species of flowers, for example, among almost 500 species that can be found in the mountains.

A labor of love conceived by the Sandia Ranger District and the Friends of the Sandia Mountains, this book is a resource no visitor to the Sandias should be without. "Field Guide to the Sandia Mountains" ISBN 0-8263-3667-1. All profits and royalties go back to our mountain in one way or another.
