Bears Ears and Grand Staircase Escalante

Years ago, the United States decided to create Glen Canyon Dam.  A man named Edward Abbey decided to float the Colorado River to see what we stood to lose with that dam.  He wrote about it in his cult classic book "Desert Solitaire".

After reading that the United States decided to shrink Grand Staircase Escalante and Bears Ears National Monuments down to 1/3 of their previous size to open the areas up for mining, I decided to go explore the areas while I still could hoping to also learn the impact of this decision. 

 

Like Edward Abbey, I wanted to go see what we stand to lose.  On this page, I plan to document what I find.
