The huge hunk of the Colorado Plateau encompassed by the Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument is divided into three physiographic regions, each distinct and extremely scenic: the canyons of the Escalante, which the Hole-in-the-Rock Road (Ride 55) accesses; the mesas and deep canyons of the Kaiparowits Plateau at the center of the monument; and the Grand Staircase, a series of colorful cliffs ascending northward in the west-southwestern part of the monument. The Chocolate Cliffs are of the Chinle formation (of the Tri-assic period); the Pink Cliffs, of the Claron formation (Tertiary). The “risers” and “treads” between include the Vermilion Cliffs (Moenavi and Kayenta formations; Jurassic period), the White Cliffs (Navajo formation; Jurassic), and the Gray Cliffs (Dakota formation; Cretaceous). General location: Grand Staircase–Escalante National Monument is immense (1.7 million acres), encompassing most of southern Utah between the Colorado River and Bryce Canyon National Park.
