Bears Ears National Monument

Today I continue my series on all 124 U.S. National Monuments. This is in follow up to my series that featured open access photos of all of the U.S. National Parks. In the coming years, I will highlight open access images all of the U.S. National Monuments in alphabetical order.

Today, I have to go backward in the alphabet to feature one of the newest monuments, Bears Ears National Monument in Utah, which was just proclaimed as a monument on December 28, 2016 by President Obama. You can see the White House Proclamation designating the site here. The monument was established at the urging of 24 tribal governments to protect the sacred site from looting and development.

Following the photos is a list of U.S. National Monuments previously featured on this blog.
