“Whatever you are physically…male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy–all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. All those other things, they are the glass that contains the lamp, but you are the light inside.” – Cassandra Clare

“Reputation is what others think of us; character is what we know of us. When you spend a lot of energy trying to repair a few moments of time that destroyed the view others once had of you, or a judgment someone made of you, true or not, then you must ask yourself, why take on the problem when it is really them?”  – Tambre Bryant

The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument begins near Ruby’s Inn and is a very unique region of canyons, arches, plateaus and cliffs. This area, which comprises 1.7 million acres, was designated a National Monument just recently in 1996 and is considered to be one of the last explored areas of the continental United States.

Various Native American Indians and their dwellings have inhabited this area for nearly 2,000 years. Writings and even their food storage areas are still visible in the cliffs and canyons of this region.

The Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument is partly named for the Escalante River, which flows from Boulder Mountain to the Colorado River. Deep canyons and gorges have been carved over eons of time. These sandstone labyrinths with unusual rock shapes and slot canyons offer some of the best hiking and backpacking in the world.

When early geologists saw the series of cliffs and plateaus rising 6,000 feet from the Colorado River at the Grand Canyon to Bryce Canyon, they called it the Grand Staircase. Three billion years of geologic history make up the layers of sedimentary rocks. Each of the five “steps” has been eroded, revealing cliffs of distinctive color. Travelers can see the Grand Staircase from some of the viewpoints in Bryce Canyon.

….the Grand Canyon on the south (right side of illustration) to the Aquarius Plateau on the north, the land steps down and then back up again.   On the chart you will notice a lower central valley, and as you move left across the illustration you will see a series of formations going up from the Vermillion Cliffs, White Cliffs, Grey Cliffs, Pink Cliffs to the Aquarius Plateau.

The Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument is unique in several different ways.   For one thing, the Grand Staircase is the first national monument to not be managed by the National Park Service.   The Bureau of Land Management has responsibility for this mass of unique land formations that covers over 1.9 million acres.

“Reputation is what others think of us; character is what God knows of us. When you have spent what feels like eternity trying to repair a few moments of time that destroyed the view others once had of you then you must ask yourself if you have the problem or is it really them? God doesn’t make us try so hard…..only enemies do.”  – Shannon Alder
