Plate 551X. Orderville, UT 1909 – 2004 Viewed northwest to Orderville, UT. U.S. Highway 89 has been realigned, widened, and paved. The town has expanded to the southwest. Note how heavily grazed and contour-trailed the hill closest to the camera was in 1909. This likely was done by domestic sheep. Today, range conditions have improved and trailing has been eliminated.
