Description:

Plate 792X. Enterprise Cemetery 1936 – 2005 Viewed north along the eastern edge of the Enterprise Cemetery - - the cemetery is on the left side of the fence. According to the caption on the original photograph the cemetery was fenced to exclude livestock in 1925 and “affords a contrast between the protected and heavily grazed range and also shows the abundance of grass cover which results from protection. Diaries of old time residents depict this range as once supporting stands of grass similar to that which is now found inside the cemetery.” Hilaria jamesii or galleta was the most abundant grass inside the cemetery in 1936.
