Plate 259. MEADOW CREEK 1944-2000 Viewed southeast across Meadow Creek west of Meadow, Utah. The earlier photograph shows a brush dam that was constructed by local residents to trap debris carried down by floodwaters from the mountains (Plates 121-124). The original camera station could not be reoccupied due to the growth of juniper. Thus, the retake is from a slightly higher elevation. In addition, a new earth-filled dam (photo center left to right) has been built to trap sediment. The concrete-lined structure in the retake is an irrigation ditch. Pinyon-juniper has increased on the distant hillsides, though, some was probably cut to build the original brush dam. The tall shrub on the near hillside is cliffrose.
