Calf Creek

ca. 1930



Plate 56X. Calf Creek ca. 1930-2002 Viewed north up Calf Creek from east of the Escalante River Overlook on Utah Highway 12. The CCC barracks and gravel road up Calf Creek are visible in the original. Note the absence of woody vegetation in the original and how conditions have improved today. Most of the plants are willows and cottonwoods. Very little tamarisk is present. Pinyon and juniper have also increased.
