Calf Pasture Hollow




Plate 536X. Calf Pasture Hollow 1933 – 2004 Viewed west up Calf Pasture Hollow to the old CCC camp above Orderville, UT. The East Fork of the Virgin River flows from right to left. The original photograph was taken from the old roadway, while the retake was taken from the present alignment of U.S. Highway 89, which is approximately 40 feet higher. This was necessary as cottonwood trees now block the original view. Cottonwoods and other woody riparian vegetation have increased despite yearly livestock grazing on this private pasture. Pinyon and juniper have increased, while oakbrush has thickened. The area between the camera and the river is now used as a stock holding area.
