Sitting at Hole-in-the-Rock watching the sun set, revealing a spectrum of colors above the Strait Cliffs of Fifty Mile Mountain south of Escalante in the Grand Staircase-Escalate National Monument in South-central Utah...
The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument contains 1.9 million acres (7,571 km2) of land in southern Utah, the United States. There are three main regions: the Grand Staircase, the Kaiparowits Plateau, and the Canyons of the Escalante. President Bill Clinton designated the area as a U.S. National Monument in 1996 using his authority under the Antiquities Act. Grand Staircase-Escalante encompasses the largest land area of all U.S. National Monuments.
Hole in the Rock is a narrow and steep crevice in the western rim of Glen Canyon, in southern Utah in the western United States. Together with another canyon on the eastern side of the Colorado River, it provided a route through what would otherwise be a large area of impassible terrain.
Hole-in-the-Rock road is a rough dirt rough with extreme washboard in some locations. Hole-in-the-Rock, the actual crevice on the Western Rim of Glen Canyon, is a long, slow, and very bumpy fifty (50) mile drive from the town of Escalante, Utah...
