Firepit Knoll




Plate 1442X. Firepit Knoll 1940 – 2007 Viewed east to Firepit Knoll (7,265 ft.) on the Lower Kolob Plateau in Zion National Park. Woody vegetation now blocks the original camera station so the retake was made from the nearest open area, which is farther to the right. All woody species have increased. This includes oakbrush, sagebrush, pinyon, juniper, ponderosa pine, bitterbrush, cliffrose, chokecherry, and Utah serviceberry.
