Toadstool

Toadstool trail head off 89 in Southern Utah in GSENM. I’m dismayed at the recent decision of the administration to repeal the monument status of Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument (GSENM). Other protected lands are also effected but his one is mentioned because it is most well know and it is close to our hearts. We own undeveloped land that boarders GSENM and have experienced it’s vastness and beauty first hand. We should all be compelled to preserve a few places that remain natural and disallow mining and drilling in these peaceful places.
