Cottonwood Canyon

Cottonwood Canyon Professional Review and Guide

"From 1915 to 1920, a man named Neil M. Judd conducted an archaeological survey that extended from the Grand Canyon north to the Great Salt Lake and from Nevada to the Green River in eastern Utah. One day, while exploring Cottonwood Canyon near the town of Kanab, he came across a particularly large and well-preserved Ancestral Pueblo ruin.

While investigating the ruin, it will probably occur to you that the larger chambers appear to have been used for habitation and many of the smaller ones for storage. According to Judd, that was indeed the case. Corn was probably one of the major storage items. The site also contains a large kiva."
