Video: A Look at the Newest U.S. National Monument – Bears Ears

One of the big stories that occurred while we were away celebrating the holidays was that President Obama declared a new national monument in the form of Bears Ears in Utah. Stretching out over 1.3 million acres, the landscape there is utterly beautiful, and contains not only great opportunities for outdoor enthusiasts, but is rich in culture and history for the Native Americans that once lived there. In this oh-so short, but wonderful, video we get a glimpse at this newly protected region, which is already on my list of places to visit.
