Last fall, I took a trip to the Grand Staircase in Southern Utah with my family. Seeing my parents in this slot canyon will always be a highlight of my adult life. Their eyes lit up like a kid on Christmas morning. Red rock walls hundreds of feet high have that effect. I just read an @npr article stating that a Canadian firm will begin mining on land that used to be part of the National Monument. This is a tragedy. I understand we need minerals, but there are some places that are too special and some actions that can’t be undone. You can read the article in the link below: https://www.npr.org/2018/06/21/622128554/firm-prepares-to-mine-land-previously-protected-as-a-national-monument#SaveGrandStaircase
