A rare chance to see Range Creek Archaeology and History in the Book Cliffs!
Hidden deep within the Bookcliffs near Moab, Range Creek is rich archeological corridor. We are thrilled to provide this opportunity to explore these relatively unknown sites. Days are spent hiking to spectacular sites, and evenings are spent relaxing beneath the stars around a comfortable base camp. CFI’s combination of topic experts and experienced guides ensures that your time spent exploring Range Creek Archaeology will be informative, comfortable, and exciting.
An educational getaway
The Range Creek Archaeology seminar with a tour of the John Wesley Powell River History Museum in Green River Utah. From there, ditch your cars, and load into our 4-wheel drive vehicles to head into the wilderness. Expert archeologists will guide the group to lesser-known archeology sites providing information about Ancient American tools, architecture, and lifestyles. Guides will set up base camp, cook meals, and make sure you are well rested for the next day’s adventure!

Visitors from far away can look at pictures online or in a book of Utah’s rock art, and they do, but the allure goes beyond that: seeing the creations in their true environment is the preferred and optimal way to appreciate them. And it is the preferred and optimal way to appreciate Utah as well.
