The Bureau of Land Management’s Monticello Field Office contains its share of the Colorado Plateau’s most spectacular landscapes.  Surrounding the Abajo Mountains is a variety of high desert attractions.  South of the mountains is the Comb Ridge Monocline, a major crustal uplift about 80 miles in length.  The San Juan River cuts through this major uplift from east to west in a dramatic series of canyons.  West of Comb Ridge is Grand Gulch, which cuts a serpentine swath through Cedar Mesa.  To the north of the mountains is Indian Creek, which is a world renowned rock climbing area.  Throughout this area Ancestral Puebloan Native Americans left a legacy that includes hundreds of cliff dwellings and thousands of pictographs and petroglyphs.
