Kanab Creek




Plate 538X. Kanab Creek 1938 – 2004 Viewed northeast up Kanab Creek about one-half mile above Three Lakes Canyon. The original camera station is now blocked by woody vegetation, so the retake was made from the nearest open area. Pinyon and juniper have increased, as have willows and cottonwoods along Kanab Creek - - see Plate 539x.
