Clear Creek




Plate 1175X. Clear Creek 1929 – 2006 Viewed northwest down Clear Creek in Zion National Park. The photopoint is on top of the first rock-cut west of the short tunnel. Utah Highway 9 has been widened and paved. Woody vegetation now blocks the original photopoint, so the retake was made from the nearest open area. Clear Creek is to the left of the road. Woody species include ponderosa pine, pinyon, juniper, oakbrush, cliffrose, shinney-leaf manzanita, Utah serviceberry, and turbinella oak. Road-fill has naturally revegetated. Otherwise vegetation change has been minimal.
