I had to drive through Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in order to get to Bryce Canyon. This place is truly massive, according to Google it is “1.7 million-acres of diverse, rugged terrain”. That means it is the biggest park in the National Park system in the state of Utah, and its borders touch Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, and Glen Canyon, plus I think even the Vermilion Cliffs National Monument in Arizona (I’m getting this Info off of my Road Atlas). But its massive, and I honestly don’t know how much a person can do here, unless you do true backcountry hiking and camping. Mostly, you just drive through part of it, and there were some hikes I could have done, but I just wanted to get to Bryce Canyon at that point. Geologically, I think it answers a lot of questions on how this area evolved over time. It seems like if you were willing, it would be a cool place to adventure into, but also a place to get lost in very easily.
