Utah’s tenacious efforts to take back federal land stand out

The Upper Gulch section of the Escalante Canyons within Utah’s Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument features sheer sandstone walls, broken occasionally by tributary canyons. Utah has long stood out for going far beyond other Western states in trying to get back control of its federally protected lands. When President Donald Trump on Monday, Dec. 4, 2017, announces he’s going to shrink two national monuments in the state, his warm welcome will stand out in a region that is normally protective of its parks and monuments.
