Should Cedar Breaks Be A National Park?

Some folks in southern Utah would like to expand the land included within Cedar Breaks National Monument, and they may push to turn it into a national park.

Cedar Breaks includes a huge natural amphitheater that has been eroded out of the variegated Pink Cliffs high in the mountains above Cedar City.

Paul Roelandt, superintendent at Cedar Breaks, meet yesterday with local officials to answer their questions and describe options and the feasibility of expanding the national monument.

“The idea being discussed is that Ashdown Gorge Wilderness and Flanagan's Arch could become a part of Cedar Breaks and the entire area could become a national park,” The Spectrum newspaper reported. Here’s the full article.

The Salt Lake Tribune had this report in today's paper.
