Hurricane Cliffs

Description:

Plate 1411X. Hurricane Cliffs 1943 – 2006 Viewed east-southeast to the Hurricane Cliffs and the Kolob Canyons addition to Zion National Park. Horse Ranch Mountain (8,726 ft) is on the left. The road to New Harmony has been widened and paved. Pinyon and juniper now block the original camera station, so the retake was made from the nearest open area. Pinyon and juniper have increased, as has oakbrush. Plates 1410x and 1411x form a panorama.
