The shrubs along the creek are heavily browsed willows and lightly browsed shrubby cinquefoil. Spruce has increased, while aspen has declined. The area between the camera and the stream was contour-trenched and reseeded to control erosion. The planted grasses are mostly smooth brome and intermediate wheatgrass.
Retakes were also made from the same camera station by the Forest Service in 1988 and 2000. U.S. Forest Service photograph (unnumbered) taken in 1959; retake by Charles E.
