Photographer's Note

People have lived in the Colorado Plateau region for about 12,000 years, but only random fragments of worked stone reveal their presence near Bryce Canyon. Artifacts add details of human use at lower elevations, and archeologists study ancestral Puebloan and Fremont cultural influences found nearby. Paiutes, who lived here when white settlers came to southern Utah, accounted for the hoodoos as the "Legend People" whom Coyote had turned to stone.
