Round Point




Plate 434X. Round Point 1921 – 2004 Viewed north from Round Point across Round Valley to Canaan Peak (9,293 ft.). The original camera station is now blocked by woody vegetation, so the retake was made from the nearest open area. Pinyon and juniper have increased. Note the high voltage powerline in the retake, as well as the new access roads.
