Plate 597X. Duck Lake 1941 – 2004 Viewed northwest across the outlet of Duck Lake on the Dixie National Forest. The area is no longer grazed by livestock and lakeside riparian vegetation has increased. Conifers, primarily spruce, white fir, and ponderosa pine, have increased, while aspen has declined. Some aspen, however, has successfully regenerated because ungulate herbivory has been reduced (Kay and Bartos 2000).
