Protesters demonstrate against the new Bears Ear National Monument in Montecello, Utah, Thursday, Dec. 29, 2016. President Barack Obama expanded his environmental legacy in the final days of his presidency with national monument designations on lands in Utah and Nevada that have become flashpoints over use of public land in the U.S. West.  The Bears Ears National Monument in Utah will cover over 1 million acres in the Four Corners region, the White House announced Wednesday.  (Rick Egan/The Salt Lake Tribune via AP) **FILE**
