Graff Point




Plate 1328X. Graff Point 1906 – 2006 Viewed southeast from the road below Graff Point. Oakbrush now blocks the original camera station, so the retake was made from the nearest open area. Oakbrush has increased, as have other mountain brush species and conifers. Wildland fuels have also increased. The haze in the retake is from wildfires in Nevada.
