Mount Marvine

1915

2001

Description:

Plate 333. MOUNT MARVINE 1915-2001 Plates 333 to 337 form a panorama from the top of Mount Marvine on the Fishlake Plateau. Plate 333 is viewed west-southwest across Sevenmile Valley to Sevenmile Cirques. Throughout most of the photograph aspen has declined, while conifers have increased. Many aspen stands have also been heavily invaded by conifers, and most have not regenerated in many years due to excessive browsing. Some small aspen clones, however, have increased in size (photo right center) and all aspen have increased in height. Willows appear unchanged along Sevenmile Creek. Conifers also appear to have increased on Fishlake Hightop behind and above the cirques. Insects have now begun to kill the mature spruce. Note the new forest access road in the retake.
