Heritage

PIT volunteers record a site in the High Uintas.On the Ashley National Forest there is over 10,000 years of history, from ancient Paleo-Indian hunting along the Green River to Fremont farmers storing their corn in hidden granaries on canyon walls to leaving seasonal hunting camps in the mountains.  More recently explorers, mountain men, miners, cowboys, sheepherders, loggers, and finally the Forest Service have left their mark on the land. The articles, photographs, and documents on this website cover many topics. Some are for serious students of prehistory; others are for more general audiences. This is our history, our past, our story. Please send suggestions, observations, or comments to cejohnson@fs.fed.us.
