What will I see?
This Monument may not be what you expect. It does not have visitor centers, dining or lodging facilities, or gasoline stations, but what it does have are expansive views and the striking wild character of one of the most remote regions in the continental United States. Within this one million acre monument there is 500 million years of exposed geologic history of the Colorado Plateau, a human occupation record of over 10,000 years, and an ecological diversity that ranges from the hot Mojave Desert to cool ponderosa pine forests.
