Owner of Twin Rocks Trading Post and Café in Bluff
Growing up in Bluff for Steve Simpson meant exploring canyons to look for ancient ruins or cooling off in the San Juan River. After a lifetime of wandering the landscape around his childhood home, Simpson still wanders the land looking for, and easily finding, inspiration and wonder.
“You have to get out into Bears Ears to truly understand it. The spectacular scenery and the amazing natural resources are world class. Bears Ears is 1.35 million acres. It’s very large and very diverse; you really need to experience it but once you have you will understand.”
“The last two or three years, because of Covid, I’ve had a time to really get back out on the landscape. Bears Ears is diverse enough you can experience it on a lot of different levels. Whether it’s a short hike, viewing petroglyphs or getting into the backcountry and hiking for days.”
