Salina Canyon




Plate 222. SALINA CANYON 1920-2000 Viewed west down Salina Canyon above Rattlesnake Point. The cow in the original photograph had just been pulled from the bog and was too weak to get on her feet. The area has since been altered by construction of I-70. The photopoint is between the frontage road on the left and I-70 on the right. The swamp has been ditched, drained, and filled. Salina Creek is to the left of the frontage road and this bog was never part of the main stream channel. Pinyon and juniper have increased on the distant hillsides.
