Endangered Monuments

Click an image to enlarge

In 2017, President Trump issued an order abolishing two of our most cherished public lands: Utah’s Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monuments, potentially exposing 2 million acres of unique wilderness, and 10's of thousands of native cultural sites to drilling and mining.  I created this gallery to highlight some of the beautiful historical and natural resources that are now endangered by losing protection as National Monuments.  I promise to donate 40% off all sales thru Dec 31 from this gallery to Utah Diné Bikéyah and the Natural Resources Defense Council to support legal challenges in defense of these unique areas.

It was a hard decision!

Landscape and nature photography from as close as Coney Island and the Catskills, and as far as Costa Rica and Iceland, Yosemite and Zion.
