Guided exploration of the "World's Longest Art Gallery"
Join CFI guides, and faculty archaeologists for an in-depth exploration of the world famous sites within Nine Mile Canyon. Throughout the trip, we will be hiking, exploring, discussing history and hoping to gain a deeper understanding and cultural perspective. Nine Mile has much to share.
This is a four-day, three-night trip with daily excursions to agency-approved sites that feature Barrier Canyon, Fremont Culture, and Ute rock imagery and occupational sites. There are also many interesting historical sites and stories dating from the 1800’s to present day. We’ll stay in accommodations at the Nine Mile Ranch, and spend the days visiting these sites in CFI’s vehicles. This is an all inclusive experience that covers meals, snacks, lodging, and cultural history experts.

Behind the scenes tour
The trip begins with a special tour of at the Prehistoric Museum, led by Museum Director and Curator of Anthropology, Dr. Tim Riley. Enjoy an inside look at valuable background information on cultural sequence, pertinent research, and artifacts from Nine Mile Canyon. Your museum entrance fee is included in the seminar cost.
I would highly recommend this tour. The sites we visited were very interesting and the subject matter experts provided a much fuller experience that I could have ever had if I had visited these areas by myself. I will be attending more tours through CFI in the future.
