Dameron Hollow

1941

1999

Description:

Plate 166 DAMERON HOLLOW: 1941 - 1999 This is on the Dameron winter range south of Kanosh. The 1941 photo was taken to document over-browsing by mule deer on cliffrose (Cowania stansburiana). Deer had denuded this cliffrose plant as high as the animals could reach. In 1999 pinyon (Pinus edulis) and juniper (Juniperus sp.) blocked the original camera station necessitating a slightly different perspective. The area was still heavily used by deer in 1999 and was also grazed by cattle. Both pinyon and juniper appear to have increased over the years. Black Rock Volcano is visible in the right upper-center of the photo.
