Horseshoe CanyonUtah, USA, within it, the Great Gallery -one of the largest and best preserved collections of Barrier Canyon Style rock art in the United States. 

7,000-9,000 BCE marks the earliest date given to human presence in Horseshoe Canyon, when the Paleo-Indians would hunt large mammals such as Mammoths across the southwest. Later inhabitants included the Desert Archaic culture, a nomadic group of hunter-gatherers who produced the Great Gallery. Occupation by the Fremont culture and Ancestral Pueblo People were both relatively brief. It is thought that the canyon was abandoned about 1300 AD by the Native American Peoples.
