Sevenmile Valley




Plate 191. SEVENMILE VALLEY 1915-2000 Viewed southeast over the upper portion of Sevenmile Creek with Mount Marvine in the distance. All five aspen clones on the hillside immediately above the riparian area have increased in size, but only the clone on the end of the ridge has regenerated in recent years. Silver sage has decreased in the foreground. A fence has been added, but has since fallen into disrepair - - a new fence has been built 100 ft behind (west of) the photopoint. Willows have increased in size and number. The boulder to the right of the horsemen in the original now has willows immediately to its rear, while the boulders to the left of the horsemen are now completely hidden by willows. Other foreground rocks visible in the retake were hidden from view in 1915 by silver sage.
