Description: The Colorado Plateau is a 130,000 square mile area within western Colorado, northwestern New Mexico, southern and eastern Utah and northern Arizona. It has the greatest concentration of U.S. National Parks in the country along with nearly twenty national monuments, wilderness areas, and forests. Rich in history and geology, it is largely made up of high desert with scattered forests. Much of the landscape is similar in appearance and geologic history to the Grand Canyon. The Plateau has been given the nickname "Red Rock Country" for its brightly colored rock of varied red hues. Domes, hoodoos, fins reefs, goblins, narrows, natural bridges and slot canyons are only some of its many features. Ancestral Puebloan people lived in the region from around 2000 to 700 years ago, and it saw exploration by early missionaries, Native Americans, pioneers and the Army. Join us to view some of the Southwest's most spectacular parks and monuments, including Grand Canyon, Zion National Park, and Grand Staircase-Escalante. This one-hour session at the Fairfax REI store is free, but space is limited and advance registration is required at www.rei.com/stores/fairfax.
