Archaeological slideshow on Cedar Mesa: The future of a sacred landscape

See also

Located in remote southeastern Utah, the greater Cedar Mesa area is considered sacred by many, including several Native American tribes. America’s last great “Outdoor Museum,” the region is blanketed with more than 56,000 prehistoric archaeological sites.

Nowhere else will you find so many well preserved cliff dwellings and rock art panels in a back-country environment. Yet the area faces many threats, and few protections are in place to preserve this wonderful place for future generations.

This slideshow will feature dozens of intriguing photographs and provides an opportunity to learn about the work being done to save this special place.

Sponsored by the National Trust for Historic Preservation and Friends of Cedar Mesa.
