Kanab Creek is one long little creek at 125 miles (201 kilometers) from its headwaters in Kane County, Utah. It begins near the Great Basin as a tiny stream and runs all the way to the Colorado River. It flows past the tiny community of Kanab, Utah, crossing the border to Arizona near the even smaller town of Fredonia.
During its course southward it flows through the Kaibab Indian Reservation of the First Nations Paiute people and the Kanab Creek Wilderness, before merging into the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon National Park.
The Kanab Creek Wilderness was officially designated a protected wilderness area in 1884 and it covers a total of 68, 231 acres, mostly located in Arizona near the Grand Canyon.
This is located on the border of the First Nations Kaibab – Paiute Reservation in Northern Arizona just below the border with Utah on the flatlands between the north sides of the Grand Canyon and the Escalante Grand Staircase National Monument.
Running vertically up the center of the image is the Kanab Creek which runs all the way from its headwaters on the Paunsaugunt Plateau to the west of Bryce Canyon, down through the Skutumpah Terrace and the White Cliffs, and further south through the Vermilion Cliffs and alongside the town of Kanab Utah, then through the Shinarump Cliffs and the tiny city of Fredonia, Arizona.
