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 25% of all sales  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.
