Duck Creek Sink

1943

Description:

Plate 601X. Duck Creek Sink 1943 – 2004 Viewed northeast to the sink on Duck Creek - - this is where the stream disappears underground - - see Plate 600x. The sink is more vegetated today than in the past, which likely is the result of the recent extended drought. As reduced flows down Duck Creek have failed to fill the sink, plants have become established - - see Plate 600x. A new boundary fence has been constructed. Dixie National Forest is to the right and private property to the left.
