The Nine Mile Canyon is located in eastern Utah and is 40 miles long. The area is noted for its amount of cave art from the Archaic and Ute time periods, which were thousands of years BC. This area is listed as one of America’s Most Endangered Places and includes 63 sites within the canyon that are registered as historic places.

The panels of cave art are endangered due to the quick eroding of the stone they are carved in. Dust and touching of these caves makes it erode much faster. Notable sites within the canyon include the “Hunter Panel,” Daddy Canyon,” and “Dry Canyon.” The canyon is a great place to drive with the family.
