A quick glance at the southern section of Utah's map instantly sets focus on a large swath of park lands that sweep across the state. The largest by far is the Grand Staircase - Escalante National Monument. Governed by the BLM, the vast 1.9 million acre monument dominates the southern desert. The major steps of the staircase are better seen from the air, consisting of the eastern Escalante Canyons, the central Kaiparowits Plateau and the Paria River Basin to the west.
