Description:

Plate 580X. Strawberry Valley 1940 – 2004 Viewed southeast across the lower portion of Strawberry Valley. The area in the foreground was root-plowed and reseeded with crested wheatgrass, smooth brome, and Kentucky bluegrass in 1936. Green rabbitbrush has invaded the seeding, which was grazed by domestic sheep in 2004. The taller shrubs are currants. Ponderosa pine has increased. A new road has been built up Strawberry Valley.
