Description:

Plate 1300X. Lower Bear Valley 1924 – 2006 Viewed northwest across Lower Bear Valley to Burnt Peak (8,784 ft). Pinyon and juniper now block the original photopoint, so the retake was made from the nearest open area. Utah Highway 20 is in the distance - - note the roadcuts. Pinyon, juniper, oakbrush, and mountain brush have all increased, as have wildland fuels.
