Antimony Canyon

1943

2003

Description:

Plate 210X. Antimony Canyon 1943 - 2003 Viewed south-southwest across Antimony Canyon. Woody riparian vegetation along Antimony Creek appears to have increased, as has pinyon and juniper. The rock formations in the foreground have eroded, especially the hoodoo on the right edge of the photos. Note how the small pinyon to the right of the person in the initial image has eroded and fallen. Livestock are excluded from this section of Antimony Canyon. Sagebrush appears to have increased, especially between the bottom of the rock formation and the stream.
