Barney Top




Plate 100X. Barney Top 1935-2002 Viewed south-southeast to Barney Top (10,577 ft.) from just east of the summit on the Escalante to Widtsoe Road (FH 17). Conifers have increased despite selective logging, while aspen has declined. All aspen stands have been heavily invaded by conifers. Conifers have grown-up and now block the original photopoint so the camera station for the retake was moved to the nearest open area on the road.
