Right Hand Creek




Plate 1335X. Right Hand Creek 1906 – 2006 Viewed east-southeast across Right Hand Creek. Woody vegetation now obscures the original camera station, so the retake was made from the nearest open area, which, unfortunately, is more than one half mile away on the Cedar Mountain – Kolob Reservoir Road. Thus, the retake is a rather poor match, but it is the best that could be done under the circumstances. Conifers, oakbrush, pinyon, juniper, and other mountain brush species have all increased, as have forest fuels.
