Boulder, Utah




Plate 41X. Boulder, Utah 1935-2002 Viewed northeast to the town of Boulder, Utah. The men in the original image were working on the Escalante to Boulder road, now Utah Highway 12. The highway has since been realigned, widened, and paved, which has destroyed the original photopoint. Pinyon and juniper have decreased, where fields have been cleared, but in undisturbed areas, pinyon-juniper appears to have increased.
