Grand Staircase-Escalante
National Monument, Utah

The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is an area of plateaus, sandstone canyon, unique rock formations and cliffs in southern Utah. The 1.7 million acres of desert became the nation's newest national monument in September 1996.

The Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument is partly named for the Escalante River, which flows from Boulder Mountain to the Colorado River. Deep canyons and gorges have been carved over eons of time. These sandstone labyinths with unusual rock shapes and slot canyons offer some of the best hiking and backpacking in the world.
