BLM Buys Land Near SW Utah Canyon
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management has bought land at the mouth of a canyon in southwest Utah.
The Salt Lake Tribune reports Wednesday that the bureau purchased 41 acres (16.6 hectares) of the popular hiking space.
Various waterfalls and two canyons can be accessed from a 2-mile hike down the Kanarra Creek trail.
The federal agency bought the land for $600,000 from private owners.
According to the bureau's environment analysis, the purchase opens the site's development options.
