Left Fork Of Blubber Creek




Plate 290X. Left Fork of Bubber Creek 1950 - 2003 Viewed southeast across the Left Fork of Blubber Creek on the Paunsaugunt Plateau. The meadow is a seep area, which are common along this section of Blubber Creek. The original camera station could only be approximated, as many of the older trees have been logged and the forest in-grown. Spruce has increased, as has vegetative ground cover. This area has not been reseeded. The low shrubs are shrubby cinquefoil. The area was actively being grazed by cattle in 2003.
