Utah Just Got A New National Monument, And You’re Going To Want To Visit

On December 28, 2016, President Obama proclaimed the Bears Ears National Monument. This 1,351,849-acre monument includes some of Utah’s most stunning scenery, and some truly significant ancestral ruins. The monument is managed by the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forestry Service, and a coalition of five Native American tribes.
