Boulder Mountain

1964

2002

Description:

Plate 30X. Boulder Mountain 1964-2002 Viewed south from Utah Highway 12 on the southeastern flank of Boulder Mountain. The original photopoint was destroyed when the road was widened and paved, so the perspective is slightly different in the retake. Aspen successfully regenerated about 25 years ago when mule deer population collapsed (Kay and Bartos 2000). The area was heavily grazed by livestock in 2002. An ATV trail has been added near the base of the hill.
