3 New National Monuments

Click for photo credit.
There was big news this week for those of us who follow the status of public lands in the United States.

The President designated three new national monuments yesterday. They are all located in southern California in the Mojave Desert. This brings the list of U.S. national monuments to 120. They are Sand to Snow, Mojave Trails, and Caste Mountains National Monuments. Because they were just announced, the exact boundaries or definitions of the monuments have not been released.

You can read more about the designation in this article from the LA Times. These three new monuments will certainly be part of my series that features the U.S. National Monuments.
