Hammond Canyon

Hammond Canyon in the Manti-La Sal National Forest is filled with archaeological sites. One of best preserved is the Three Fingers Ruin, an Ancestral Pueblo cliff dwelling built between A.D. 900 and 1200.

This is one of my favorite places in my book. The canyon's natural beauty and archaeological sites are on a par with Grand Gulch – but at a higher elevation and with far fewer hikers.
