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 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.
