Plate 234X. Podunk Creek 1961 - 2003 Viewed southwest across lower Podunk Creek and up the East Fork of the Sevier River. The original image was made as the area was being contour-trenched and reseeded to control erosion. Conifers, primarily spruce, have increased, while aspen has declined. Willows in the distance appear to have increased - - they are located just upstream from the Podunk Guard Station. A limber pine has become established in the left foreground, while a pinyon pine has grown-up on the right. Retakes were also made from this camera station by the Forest Service in 1988 and 2000.
