Canyonlands Great Gallery

The Great Gallery is one of the most incredible rock art sites in the Southwest, but to reach it you have to venture to the Horseshoe Canyon annex of Canyonlands National Park, and that's roughly a 100-mile drive from Moab. One-way.

But once you see it, that two-and-a-half-hour drive will seem worth it. The gallery is a sprawling panel of prehistoric artwork that dates, perhaps, to 9,000 years B.C. "when Paleoindians hunted megafauna like mastodons and mammoths across the Southwest.”
