"Utah's governor is asking President Bush to give the San Rafael Swell, a sandstone uplift in the desert of southeastern Utah, national monument status under the same law he and Bush had criticized former President Clinton for using...The remote desert area, about 140 miles southeast of Salt Lake City, contains Indian petroglyphs, spectacular canyons, bizarre rock formations and not much water."
