Little Lost Creek




Plate 217. LITTLE LOST CREEK 1944-2000 The area in the foreground was root-plowed and reseeded in 1943 to eliminate sagebrush and to enhance the growth of grasses and forbs. Viewed northeast up Yopa Swale and Cowlay Draw from USFS Road 051. Sagebrush has since reinvaded the site seriously reducing forage production. Pinyon, juniper, and oakbrush have all increased on the distant hillsides.
