The Forgotten Treasures of Utah's Range Creek

Rancher and mountain-lion trapper Waldo Wilcox kept the country's greatest
open-air museum a secret for 50 years. Now his stash is open to the public,
and the "Indian stuff" has started to disappear.    Photograph by Greg Child

Looking west over the Book Cliffs, this vertical barrier guards Range Creek. There's only a couple of ways into Range Creek through those cliffs along rough, ranchers' roads. Snaking across the badlands-desert below, is HWY 191; the San Rafael Swell is further in the distance.
