A vast and austere landscape, #GrandStaircase-Escalante National Monument encompasses 1.9 million acres of canyons, plateaus, mesas and cliffs set in an environment of colorful geologic formations. This #Utah monument is truly a treasure and one that is even more beautiful during #monsoon season when storms create dramatic skies. Phill Monson (@phillmonson) captured this amazing pic at #sunset as an incredible cloud formed perfectly behind the toadstools. “It was a great moment of being in the right place, right time.” Photo courtesy of Phill Monson (@phillmonson). #usinterior
