Johnson Valley Reservoir




Plate 192. JOHNSON VALLEY RESERVOIR 1962-2000 Viewed northeast to where Sevenmile Creek enters Johnson Valley Reservoir. Utah Highway 25 has been realigned and paved, while random camping was eliminated after the Forest Service built several modern campgrounds in the area. The pool height has been raised by reconstruction of the existing dam (see Plates 84 and 85). Aspen is leafless in the original as that photo was taken late in the fall. Most aspen stands have now been heavily invaded by conifers and have not regenerated in recent years. Sagebrush appears unchanged.
