Mount Terrill




Plate 19. MOUNT TERRILL: 1938 - 1996 The vegetation in the foreground has not changed appreciably. Silver sage (Artemisia cana) is the predominate shrub; the more widely scattered and taller shrubs are currants (Ribes spp.). Conifers, primarily spruce (Picea sp.), have increase in height and numbers, as would be expected in the absence of fire. The Gooseberry-Sevenmile road is just below the hill in the foreground. This photo point is about 50 yards west of the one in Plate 18.
