Description:

Plate 430X. Cannonville 1924- 2004 Viewed west to the cliffs at Cannonville, UT. There has been a slight increase in pinyon and juniper. In addition, two 8-foot tall levees have been constructed to keep eroded material from being washed into town. Wyoming big sage is the most common shrub, but some plants have died during the recent drought. Greasewood and four-wing saltbrush are also present. Indian rice grass and needle and thread are the most common native grass, but foxtail and cheatgrass are also present. The area is BLM and there was no sign of recent livestock grazing.
