    Today, add the geologic and paleontolgical resources of the beautiful Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area to your Bucket List.

    The Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area in Colorado is nestled within the Uncompahgre Plateau, where Cottonwood, Escalante, Big Dominguez, and Little Dominguez Creeks tumble through red-rock sandstone canyons to empty into the Gunnison River.

    This area includes Dominguez Canyon Wilderness, where water running year-round through Little Dominguez Creek provides habitat for birds, mammals, lizards and other species. Desert bighorn sheep can also be spotted grazing beside cliffs.

    In addition to the excellent rock climbing DENCA has to offer, the rugged canyons and bluffs here hold geological and paleontological resources spanning 600 million years. Rock art on the canyon walls and archaeological sites on the mesas are evidence of thousands of years of Native American hunting and travel. Meanwhile, historical traces have also been left behind by early miners and settlers. In addition, the Old Spanish National Historic Trail, a 19th century Mexican trade route, passes through this region.

    There’s so much to explore, do and see in the DENCA!
