Bowery Creek




Plate 1387X. Bowery Creek 1941 – 2006 Viewed east up Bowery Creek in First Left Hand Canyon south of Parowan, Utah. Woody vegetation now blocks the original camera station, so the retake was made from the nearest open area. The site is now part of the Vermillion Castle Picnic Area. Willows, cottonwoods, and other woody riparian vegetation have increased, replacing the former wet meadow. In the distance pinyon, juniper, and conifers have increased.
