Bears Ears National Monument, UT
Bears Ears National Monument is truly a special place. Encompassing a large part of Cedar Mesa and Comb Ridge in Southeastern Utah, it is remote, rugged, spectacularly beautiful, and filled with Ancient Puebloan life. If you go, remember to tread softly, take nothing but pictures, and leave nothing but footprints. With over 100,000 archaeological sites, the area has at least 14,000 years of history. Bears Ears is truly a treasure to protect forever.
Most sites we visited are named, and I tried to state if a name was one we created. Any site with an official name can be researched to find more information, and maybe vague directions. The only way to really see Bears Ears is to spend time and explore. Accessing most places requires strenuous hiking in rugged terrain, so if you go, be prepared. It is well worth the effort.
