Blue Spring Valley




Plate 1051X. Blue Spring Valley 1944 – 2005 Viewed northwest to the Blue Spring Valley from Miller Knoll south of Panguitch Lake. Conifers now block the original photopoint, so the retake was made from the nearest open area. Ponderosa pine, spruce, white fir, Douglas fir, limber pine, and juniper have increased, while aspen has declined.
