Cedar Breaks Ccc Camp

1935

2006

Description:

Plate 1377X. Cedar Breaks CCC Camp 1935 – 2006 Viewed northeast to the old CCC Camp at the head of Long Valley in Cedar Breaks National Monument. The fence in the retake is the boundary between the National Monument in the foreground and the Dixie National Forest to the east. Except for the fire pit seen in Plates 1375x and 1376x, there is no evidence that buildings once stood on this site. Conifers have increased, though, many of the older spruce were recently killed by insects and disease. Aspen in the distance has declined. The foreground has not been grazed by livestock in 70 years.
