Trump‘s cuts left over 100 arch formations outside boundaries of new, smaller NMons, survey finds

Cedar Mesa in what was formerly Bears Ears. Much of the Hole in the Rock trail from the previous boundaries of Grand Staircase-Escalante. Tens of thousands of archaeological spots between the two. And many digs where paleontologists have uncovered new dinosaur fossils.
