Sevenmile Valley

1930

2000

Description:

Plate 186. SEVENMILE VALLEY 1930-2000 Plates 185 and 186 form a panorama and are viewed southwest-west across Sevenmile Valley to Sevenmile Cirques, similar to Plates 25, 26, and 184. New pasture fences have been added but the area is still heavily used by cattle. The creek, which is dry at this point, appears more stable today than it did in the original. Conifers have increased on the distant hillside, while aspen has declined. Many of the conifers are now being killed by insects and disease.
