Pass Creek




Plate 1068X. Pass Creek 1952 – 2005 Viewed northeast on West Pass Creek to Haycock Mountain (8,889 ft.) east of Panguitch Lake. The 1942 image was made as the area was being root-plowed and reseeded with crested wheatgrass and smooth brome. The seeding has now been invaded by three-tipped sage. Pinyon, juniper, ponderosa pine, and curlleaf mountain mahogany have increased in the distance, while aspen on top of the mountain has declined. Mountain big sage and bitterbrush are also found on the distant slopes.
