Lakeside Lodge




Plate 12. LAKESIDE LODGE: 1930 - 1996 Aspen (Populus tremuloides) on the southeast facing hillside above the lodge has increase in height and some clones have expanded in size. The tall dark-colored shrubs on the hillside are curlleaf mountain mahogany (Cercocarpus ledifolius) which have also increased in height and numbers. Conifers, primarily Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), have grown in height and abundance as would be expected in the absence of fire. The foreground has been disturbed by highway construction and other activities.
