Nine hundred years ago, people were living at Walhalla Glades. The site was a summer home to families for over 100 years. Walhalla Plateau is a ?peninsula? surrounded on three sides by the Grand Canyon. The elevation in this area is a bit
lower than most of the North Rim of Grand Canyon, and updrafts of warm air from the inner canyon allow the winter snows to melt earlier from Walhalla Plateau than from other rim areas. This made Walhalla a favorable place for ancestral people to farm.
