Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument
Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument spans nearly 1.9 million acres of America's public lands. From its spectacular Grand Staircase of cliffs and terraces, across the rugged Kaiparowits Plateau, to the wonders of the Escalante River Canyons, the Monument's size, resources, and remote character provide extraordinary opportunities for geologists, paleontologists, archeologists, historians, and biologists in scientific research, education, and exploration.
The drive in the is desert breathtaking. The views of Bryce are pretty cool from so far below. The dirt road is very doable for someone in a 2wd car with medium clearance. There are a few water crossings that could be a problem in early spring or fall.
They have the ink stamps here for your stamp books (National Park, etc) They are not part of the national park service and there is yet more official visitor center around the corner east on US 89 just past Wendy's. More stamps there for your collection.
Beautiful colors in the different steps.
