The night sky in the Grand-Staircase is one of the clearest pollution free skies in the world. Thanks @rhallock for the beautiful shot! Pc: @rhallock #utahisrad #nightskyphotography #gsenm #grandstaircaseescalante #highway12 #keeputahwild #escalante #beautahful

Henry Mountains as seen from a lookout on the scenic highway 12, one of the best drives in Utah. #scenicbyway12 #escalantenationalmonument #escalante #gsenm #iloveutahhiking #boulderutah #coloradoplateau #henrymountains #capitolreefnationalpark

Cedar Wash Arch is an easy hike, close to town and very few visitors, especially in the winter. Not the striking, tall red rock most arch enthusiasts go for, but good for the calm wanderer. #gsenm #beautahful #arches #instautah #exploreutah #offthebeatenpath #nationalparks #iloveutah #iloveutahhiking #utahisrad

The Utah blue sky almost looked like a cartoon in Phipp’s Canyon. Not sure the name of this small arch a few miles from the canyon’s top. #beautahful #offthebeatenpath #nationalparks #gsenm #grandstaircaseescalante #arches #utah

The epic Cosmic Ashtray. 4wd access and hard to find for the most part, especially in the winter, but well worth it. See the person to the right of the picture for perspective. #beautahful #offthebeatenpath #nationalparks #keeputahwild #utah #holeintherock #hwy12 #highway12

Batty Caves pass, from the top of peekaboo slot. #slotcanyon #beautahful #gsenm #nationalmonument #desert

A secret, unnamed slot canyon only locals know about, off the road to Egypt. Makes it worth going off the beaten path. You never know what you’ll find. #beautahful #utah #offthebeatenpath #desert #slotcanyons #nationalparks

Petroglyphs along an unnamed side canyon of the Escalante river system. #petroglyphs #gsenm #utah #grandstaircase #monument #nationalparks

More Escalante river, a few miles from the town of Escalante. #gsenm #escalante #utah #nationalparks #nationalmonument #hikingwithdogs

A quick walk from the Escalante river trail head and there a dozens of secluded meadows around each bend, perfect little sanctuaries from the hustle. #escalante #gsenm #utah #beautahful #grandstaircase #desertrat

Stephen’s Arch, near the confluence of Coyote Gulch, and the Escalante river. #grandstaircase #southernutah #desert #utah #utahphotographer

This all melted within minutes of the sun rising. Those who dare venture in the Grand Staircase during winter know to capture the snow while it lasts. Then it all turns to mud! #gsenm #grandstaircase #escalante #beutahful

Try not to see the power lines ;p and you see a fine sunset from near the Petrified Forest State Park in Escalante. #sunset #Escalante #gsenm #petrifiedforest #beutahful #utahgram

More flash flooding down Harris Wash. The water was triple this height during the big storm yesterday. #gsenm #Escalante #grandstaircase #monsoonseason #flashflood

Lone ponderosa down the Escalante River, 4 miles from the Escalante trailhead. Hike 110 miles of this to get to Lake Powell! #gsenm #grandstaircase #escalante #canyoneering #southernutah #nationalmonument

Definitely a canyon worth hiking. Keep a careful look out for the arch though--sometimes you miss it. Check out some great desert photography from @abriskman #desertphotography #gsenm #escalante #grandstaircase #utahisrad

A desert version of the Inukshuk found its way into Phipp's canyon, pointing the way to water. #gsenm #utahisrad #escalante #cairn #inukshuk #grandstaircase
