Grand-Gulch-Mine-Arch
Remains of a historic building at Grand Gulch Mine.

Rugged, wild and beautiful, Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument is located on the edge of one of the most beautiful places on earth, the Grand Canyon. Views of once violent eruptions and flowing basalt, and the destructive force of earthquakes are evident in the layers of exposed geologic history on the monument. Prehistoric trails, villages, and rock art images bring clues to the life once lived by the ancient people who once inhabited this land.
