A much larger protected area than Valley of the Gods is the nearby Grand Staircase - Escalante National Monument spanning almost 2 million acres of America's public lands. From its spectacular Grand Staircase of sandstone cliffs and terraces, across the rugged Kaiparowits Plateau, to the wonders of the Escalante River Canyons, the Monument's size, resources, and remove character provide extraordinary opportunities for geologists, paleontologists, archeologists, historicans, and biologists in scientific research, education, and exploration. And the photographer will find many rewarding locations to explore.
This remote autumn cabin scene is near Kanab, Utah in the Escalante River Canyon, Highway 89.

2 million acres? Wow, that is some size. Considering Ireland is 17 million acres in total, that gives me some sense of scale of that park.
the autumnal colors here are really beautiful and goes to show why this is such a great time of year for photographers. I like the little wooden building peeping out of the landscape too, reminds of the bridges of Maddison county. I've never seen the film, but I've seen some of the bridges!
All the best
