To comment on the monument review process (due July 10, 2017):
Before the comments deadline passes for the national monuments currently "under review" by the Interior Department for reduction or elimination, I hope to post some information and images on each of the monuments on the list.
I've been to a number of these monuments, but I will be supplementing this series with photos from other sources, too. Of course, I'd love to spend the next month on the road visiting each of them myself, but that just isn't possible right now!
There will be many posts for some of these monuments, and just one for others. I am spending a lot of time on Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante, two places I fell in love with in 2016, and two of the monuments in the biggest danger of elimination. These two monuments are largely responsible for the Executive Order calling for the review of all of these special places.
