Round Point




Plate 435X. Round Point 1921 – 2004 Viewed northwest from Round Point across the western edge of Round Valley. Powell Point (10,188 ft.) is on the right skyline. 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 except where they have been chained on Slickrock Bench (photo left-center). Note the high voltage powerline in the retake, as well as the new access roads. Original photograph taken by R.C. Moore (No. 145) in 1921; retake by Charles E. Kay on May 13, 2004 - - Photo No. 5302-36A.
