NINE MILE CANYON
THE SANDSTONE WALLS of Nine Mile Canyon (right) have been shaped just as much by human hands and imagination as they have by the weather. Along the canyon walls, ancient petroglyphs and pictographs (inset) tell the stories of a people long gone. Nicknamed “The World’s Longest Art Gallery,” Nine Mile Canyon contains hundreds of rock art panels depicting fierce hunting scenes and portraits of native wildlife created by the Fremont people and other Native American tribes dating back to 940 AD.
It’s one of the most spectacular examples of Native rock art in North America.
