Ancestral Puebloans (Anasazi) and Fremont people inhabited the Canyonlands area until the 1300s. Possibly as a result of some 30 years of drought, they moved south. Their dwellings and granaries are scattered throughout this national park. These two well preserved granaries are found along the Aztec Butte Trail.
The Southern Utah area contains many sites such as this which can be visited up close. Remember to not touch any structures such as these, so future visitors may enjoy them as well.
