The White and Deer Canyon areas draining off the Cedar Mesa of southeast Utah were home to a thriving population of people almost a thousand years ago. Experts say that the climate was wetter then and the land more fruitful than the stark high desert that it is today. Maybe the pinons gave more nuts, more regularly. Maybe the corn and squash and rice grass was easier to grow to harvest, but someone carved out a living in these twisting canyons then. Their fingerprints are still visible on their walls.
