Issue editor: R. E. Burrillo

“Remote, wild, sprawling, Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument defies imagination. Its spectacular landscape bears witness to the oldest time of our planet, to the oldest human habitation on the Colorado Plateau, and to what often feel like the oldest debates about America’s public lands.

“I invite you to learn about this wondrous cultural and natural landscape through the words and images offered in these pages by our many partners and friends. I encourage you to bring that knowledge with you when you come to the monument and visit with respect, ready to learn more. I urge you to join us in strongly advocating for the future of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.”

— From the foreword by Nicole Croft, Executive Director, Grand Staircase Escalante Partners
