East Fork Of The Sevier River




Plate 232X. East Fork of the Sevier River 1959 - 2003 Viewed southwest up the East Fork of the Sevier River just below its confluence with Podunk Creek. The East Fork is at the toe of the slope and is mostly hidden from view. Both the near and the far hillsides have been contour-trenched and reseeded to control erosion. Grasses are primarily smooth brome and intermediate wheatgrass. The shrubs in the foreground are mostly rubber rabbitbrush. In the distance, spruce has increased, while aspen has declined. The road in both photographs is USFS 087 - - the main East Fork road. A retake was made from this same camera station by the Forest Service in 1988.
