When touring a national monument the size of Grand Staircase-Escalante, figuring out where to start can be a challenge. Erik Balken, a Salt Lake City-based skier and conservationist, leans on the expertise of a local guide to get a proper sense of the nearly 2 million acres of protected lands sprawling across southern Utah. Join Balken and Guide Jeff Sanders of outfitter Desert Dawn as the duo touches base in the nearby gateway town of Boulder before hiking through a remote landscape with a huge diversity of rock formations and varied terrain—from high desert to deep slot canyons and hidden waterfalls. “We have opportunities to explore in solitude,” Sanders says; this video is all the proof you need.

GrindTV – Join photographer Jo Savage as she hikes, camps, climbs, and rappels her way through the San Rafael Swell. Located in south-central Utah, just a few hours south of Salt Lake City, this rugged and remote area, packed with unique geologic formations, offers Savage an appealing canvas and instant playground that needs to be experienced first-hand. Starting with an exploration of Goblin Valley State Park, famed for its sandstone spires that provide other-worldly feels, Savage connects with river guide Ben Watson. The Green River local explains how best to utilize the nearby town along Interstate 70, which acts as a central hub for the area’s river systems and outdoor activities, highlighting some local favorite eateries and go-to stops along the way.
