Black Mountain




Plate 1321X. Black Mountain 1942 – 2006 Viewed southeast to Black Mountain (10,400 ft) from the northern edge of Cedar Mountain. The old stock driveway is now a public road. Aspen has increased in height, but most stands have not successfully regenerated due to excessive ungulate browsing (Ohms 2003). Conifers appear to have increased. The retake was made with a 70 mm telephoto lens.
