Mountain Meadow Wash

Description:

Plate 1491X. Mountain Meadow Wash 1934 – 2007 Viewed southeast up Mountain Meadow Wash in Holt Canyon - - see Plates 1489x, 1490x, and 1497x. This camera station is on the Dixie National Forest just below the Forest boundary. The stream channel has changed but note the high-voltage powerline on the skyline in both images (photo right-center). Today, Forest Service lands below the boundary fence are more heavily grazed by cattle than the private land above the fence. Thus, willows and cottonwoods are less abundant here than on the adjacent private property - - compare this photoset with Plates 1490x and 1497x that show the private ground immediately above the Forest Service fence.
