Bicknell Bottoms

1932

2002

Description:

Plate 83X. Bicknell Bottems 1932-2002 Viewed northwest across Bicknell Bottems south of Bicknell, Utah. Shown is Pine Creek. This area is now part of the K.E. Bullock Waterfowl Management Area owned by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, and as such, has not been grazed by livestock in many years. Beyond Pine Creek is the Fremont River and private property. Fishlake Hightop is seen in the distance. Less water was visible in 2002, which is likely due to the growth of emergent vegetation, such as cattails (Typha latifolia) and bull rushes (Scirpus spp.), as well as the extended drought that has gripped southern Utah for several years.
