Silas Spring




Plate 94. SILAS SPRING: 1962 - 1999 The 1962 photo was taken in the late fall when aspen (Populus tremuloides) was leafless. Aspen above the road in the 1999 photo has regenerated, but that around the spring and stock pond (photo right-center) has not. By 1999 the road had been reworked and the water trough seen in the 1962 photo removed. Sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata) appears unchanged.
