Bowery Flat

1968

2006

Description:

Plate 1381X. Bowery Flat 1968 – 2006 Viewed east-southeast across Bowery Flat below Yankee Meadows Reservoir. The photopoint is marked with a steel fencepost. Conifers have increased and ponderosa pine has invaded the meadow. Aspen has declined. The meadow was root-plowed and reseeded with smooth brome and intermediate wheatgrass some time before the original image was made. Silver sage has increased. Many of the older spruce in the distance were recently killed by insects and disease. The area was actively being grazed by cattle in 2006. The vehicles are on the road to Yankee Meadows Reservoir.
