Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument
I have previously written about a couple different places in Grand Staircase-Escalante which we have enjoyed with our Danes, Devil’s Garden and Lower Calf Creek Falls with a third location, Willis Creek slot not yet published. I give the area a 4-paw rating because dogs are welcome throughout most of the monument. It breaks my heart that this monument, along with Bears Ears, is slated to be drastically shrunk and that Martok won’t get to enjoy all the places that Varel and K’Ehleyr did.
As a pet owner one of my favorite companies is Ruffwear. (A RuffWear Web Master™ harness helped K’Ehleyr deal with becoming a tripawd.) On their blog they recently posted Protecting Public Lands: Q & A with The Conservation Alliance and have contributed $50,000 to protect and defend our public lands so that we and our pups can continue to enjoy these national treasures. I applaud them and all the other companies standing up to protect our national lands so that we, humans and non-humans, can all continue to enjoy them.
