Hurricane Cliffs




Plate 1413X. Hurricane Cliffs 1909 – 2006 Viewed east-southeast to the Hurricane Cliffs and the Kolob Canyons addition to Zion National Park from east of New Harmony, Utah. Horse Ranch Mountain (8,726 ft) is on the left skyline. Pinyon and juniper now block the original photopoint, so the retake was made from the nearest open area, which is a cleared agricultural field. Pinyon, juniper, and oakbrush have all increased. New buildings have been constructed. Plates 1412x and 1413x form a panorama.
