Glenwood Bench Parcell Creek




Plate 225. GLENWOOD BENCH PARCELL CREEK 1931-2000 The original photograph was taken to document flood debris that eventually reached Glenwood, Utah in 1931. The photopoint is just east of Utah Highway 119 and there is no evidence of recent floods in the area. The shrubs in the retake are mostly rubber rabbitbrush and greasewood. Pinyon and juniper has increased despite some recent burning. The hill on the right has been contour-trenched to control erosion. There is also a new road cut and power line on the most distant hillside.
