The Kirk's Cabin Complex was built by homesteader Rensselaer Lee Kirk circa 1890 in what would become Canyonlands National Park in Utah. Kirk was a small rancher who built a log cabin and two corrals at the location, but was unable to make a living there and abandoned the ranch after a few years. Since that time the location was used by cowboys whose herds were grazing in the area, until the late 1960s when the national park was established.(read more...)
