Cliffs and terraces and colorful layers of rock are illuminated on in an aerial photograph revealing the steps of Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument seen from the air.. The wilderness area is one million acres of public land outside of St. George, Utah. Due to its remote location and rugged landscape, the monument was one of the last places in the continental United States to be mapped.
