  The bottom of the Maze in Canyonlands National Park consists of seldom-visted interlocking canyons. The difficulty of travel comes more from the remoteness, the multitude of side canyons which all look alike, than from the terrain, as the canyons are wide and have sandy bottoms. Pictograph Fork is nearly 200 years wide, and is dotted with cottonwood trees that turn yellow in mid-October.
The panel of life-size pictographs, in the Barrier Canyon style identical to the Great Gallery in Horseshoe Canyon, was painted by the Archaic People who lived in Utah from 8,000 to 2,000 years ago, predating the Anasazi. It is named the Harvest Scene because one of the figures appears to be holding a sheaf of rice grass.
