Plate 180 is viewed southwest to Moroni Peak along the ridge between Tommy Hollow (photo left) and Pine Creek (photo right). Aspen has increased in height but has not regenerated due to repeated herbivory by elk, mule deer, and cattle. Douglas fir has increased as has pinyon-juniper. Oakbrush and curlleaf mountain mahogany are the other tall, dark-colored shrubs. An allotment fence has been added.
