Summer is the perfect time to explore America’s national parks and monuments, like Grand Staircase Escalante in southern Utah. With 800 million acres of public land in the US, you’ve got lots of spectacular choices.

Just finished the last field season at our quarry in the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument with @alfpaleo. Over the last 14 years we have uncovered material from two hadrosaurs including a juvenile, two pterosaurs, tyrannosaurs, crocs, a turtle skull, and plenty of plants and snails. . Of course, no field season is complete without obscene amounts of Tragedy. Thanks to @letsmaketragedyhappen for keeping our spirits high and rock hammers swingin' all these years. The Alf Museum crew is stoked to see your show in December in LA! . Specimens collected under federal permit from GSENM and US BLM. . #grandstaircaseescalantenationalmonument #paleontology #paleo #fieldwork #metal #protectyourpark #blmpaleo

As we were finishing this hike a group of attractive looking guys passed us. Then they asked us if the hike got any better? 😳 Attractive level - 0 If you can’t appreciate just how stunning places like this are then why bother? I like geotagging because I enjoy when people share where they’ve been so I can decide if I’d like to visit the same spot. But with geotagging I think it’s important to remind people of how we should be caring for these places. Appreciate, learn, respect, and leave no trace. That includes picking up after others as well, and please for the love of the great outdoors STOP carving your names into rock!

This hike was my favorite part of our Utah trip. We crossed the river a total of 10 times and saw the stunning Escalante Natural Bridge 😍 check out the second photo for scale! #naturalbridges #utah #grandstaircaseescalantenationalmonument #getoutside #explore

We camped near a family from Wisconsin who was taking an extended trip to see national parks with their 4 small children. They'd been to Colorado and Arizona and yet they found Utah to be the most diverse and impressive. You'd think they just raved about my first born the way I proudly pointed out all the wonderful things about Utah. I mean, I do kinda brag it up as much as I do my first born🤷‍♀️ #grandstaircaseescalantenationalmonument #escalanteutah #escalanteriver #wowutah #beutahful #visitutah #werutah #utahgram #utah #optoutside #hikeutah #hikeallthehikes #seeallthethings

We were prepared for lots of outdoor adventure situations, just not really the ones we encountered. Luckily the desert is even prettier during a rainstorm and Cinderella bandaids are just as effective on big boy toes as they are on little girl's #grandstaircaseescalantenationalmonument #escalanteutah #escalanteriver #wowutah #beutahful #visitutah #werutah #adventurebuddy #hikeallthehikes #seeallthethings

Happy #museummonday from Dibbles the diabloceratops! This is the cast of a skull found in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument and shows us why we need to protect our public lands, especially if they contain important scientific specimens. There are a lot of museum fossil specimens that come from discoveries on public lands and in order to preserve what they have to tell us they are collected by professional paleontologists. The real skull of this specimen is housed at the Natural History Museum of Utah. . . Collecting in national parks is illegal. If you find something, report it to park staff. . . . #fossils #paleontology #dinosaur #grandstaircase #grandstaircaseescalantenationalmonument #nationalparks #nps #findyourpark #enquentratuparque #ilovemuseums #naturalhistorymuseumofutah

Another great canyon on Friday. The kids loved the rattlesnake. Hiking in the water in the desert is always amazing. The #gnats are bad right now though. #redrock #desertjunkie #coventrysboysandbabygirl #healthyrecreation #grandstaircaseescalantenationalmonument #hadablast #gnatseverywhere

We’ve spent the last 12 days in Utah, it was an epic road trip with many memories made. So much beauty and adventure. 5 National Parks, over 3,000 miles and lots of dirt roads. During the days coming I am going to share some of my favorite shots from the trip; it’s too beautiful not too. 💛 #golden #goldenlight #staircase #goldenhour #goldenhourphotography #goandcapturethelight #grandstaircaseescalante #grandstaircaseescalantenationalmonument #nationalmonuments #respectandprotect #publiclands #igsouthwest #westbysouthwest #landscape #landscapephotography #utah #utahsunset #experienceutah #utahisbeautiful #utahoutdoors #naturalutah #kanab #neverstopexploring #roadtrip #summer #optoutside

The Toadstools Trailhead is found within Utah’s majestic Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. It is a 1.5-mile round-trip hike that meanders through an environment filled with balanced rock formations that resemble mushrooms. It is not uncommon to find visitors climbing on the rocks and finding different perspectives of the sprawling desert environment. The highlight of the trail comes at the end of the hike as trekkers are face-to-face with the most impressive toadstool: a lone white stem and red cap with breathtaking views of the Paria River Valley. . . . . #uthadotcom #utahlandscapephotos #yourshotphotographer #explorenature #utahunique #hike_utah #utah #utahphotos #lifeelevated #naturalutah #hiking #naturephotography #wonderfulplaces #nofilternecessary #exploretocreate #landscape_photo #chrislabascophotography #werutah #hikingday #naturegrampics #toadstooltrailhead #utahlandscape #onlyinutah #utahisrad #wowutah #chrislabascophotography #grandstaircaseescalantenationalmonument #grandstaircaseescalante #escalanteutah

Day 8. On this day we did many small hikes, but the most spectacular one at the very end of the day. When we got to the waterfall, there were tracks of mountain lion. Please be careful when you are out there. День 8. В этот день мы много разных троп прошли, но самый красивый путь был в самом конце дня к водопаду. Когда мы добрались до места, то нашли несколько следов горного льва. Будьте бдительны. #lowercalfcreekfalls #grandstaircaseescalante #grandstaircaseescalantenationalmonument #utah #waterfall

Desert tea. . I spent about eight years living in Utah. Some of my favorite moments were enjoyed camping in the desert, sleeping under a canopy of stars, expansive wild space and quiet - cooking meals and boiling water for tea over campfire. This is our first summer away and will be the first in a long time without a visit to this particular special summer spot⛰ . . #grandstaircaseescalantenationalmonument #savepubliclands #desertlovers #teaonfilm #nikon #nikonfm2 #tea #gongfucha #gongfu #teaware #yixing #deserttea #utah #colorfilmphotography

An interesting night in #grandstaircaseescalante at #devilsgarden I ran into a group of folks. As I was setting up my LED panels for low level lighting I was listening to them. I think it was a group paying for some lessons. I guess anyone is willing to pay anyone who sounds like they know what they doing. Anyway I was happy with the outcome of this one.. . . #milkyway_nightscapes #milkyway #nightphotography #utahisrad #utahgram #igutah #wowutah #intothenight #nightscapes #nightsky #nightscaper #milkywaychasers #werutah #utah #nationalpark #nationalparkgeek #westbysouthwest #milkywayshooters #utah_project #utahillustrated #thenationalparkpass #ig_milkyway #tiuniverse #nights_dreamworld #ig_milkyway #desert #desertlandscape #desertlife #grandstaircaseescalantenationalmonument

This was Adrian’s first time seeing a large waterfall. Apparently, I failed him the last two times we were in Hawaii. We’ll have to fix that in a few weeks. This was Della & Reia’s first time seeing a waterfall too! #lowercalfcreekfalls #lowercalfcreekfallstrail #grandstaircaseescalante #grandstaircaseescalantenationalmonument #desertoasis #nps #desertoasis #utah #sandstoneagain #ohanaadventures #ohanatime #optoutside #mcm #sohandsome #seethatmanbun #hipsteraf #myhubbyismymodel

Della Dog finally got to go hiking with us! This was Lower Calf Creek Falls Trail. It’s a pretty hike & was next to water the entire time which changed things up for us. There were also petroglyphs! So cool!! Traffic was relatively low too, despite it being the most popular trail in Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument. #lowercalfcreekfalls #lowercalfcreekfallstrail #grandstaircaseescalante #grandstaircaseescalantenationalmonument #nps #desertoasis #utah #sandstoneagain #ohanaadventures #ohanatime #optoutside #mcm #sohandsome #seethatmanbun #hipsteraf

Cottonwood Canyon Road. One of the more badass and “here goes nothing” drives I’ve ever made. @billoverman and I had a two wheel SUV and were told if it rains there’s no way out. So with a huge system in the forecast we hauled ass for 60 or so miles, finally landing at a camping spot near here with easy access to the highway. We made it out the next morning just in time to drive through the storm that would have turned clay to glue. Close calls are the best calls!
