One Of America’s Most Fascinating Historical Regions Is In Danger Of Destruction

When you hear the word “endangered,” your thoughts might immediately jump to the countless animal species who face grave threats throughout the world. Land and monuments, however, face many dangers of their own in the United States, and there’s one breathtaking area that remains particularly vulnerable to human harm. According to a report by the National Trust For Historic Preservation, the Ancestral Places of Southeast Utah sit atop the list of America’s most endangered historical destinations.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately.
