Strawberry Valley

Description:

Plate 579X. Strawberry Valley 1940 – 2004 Viewed northeast down Strawberry Valley to Utah Highway 14. The area in the foreground was root-plowed and reseeded with crested wheatgrass, smooth brome, and Kentucky bluegrass in 1936. Shrubby cinquefoil and green rabbitbrush have invaded the seeding, which was grazed by domestic sheep in 2004. Ponderosa pine has increased. Utah Highway 14 has been widened, paved, and the bridge over Strawberry Creek relocated.
