Tabernacle Dome

2007

Description:

Plate 1441X. Tabernacle Dome 1872 – 2007 Viewed southeast to Tabernacle Dome (6,430 ft.) on the Lower Kolob Plateau in Zion National Park. All woody species have increased. This includes oakbrush, Utah serviceberry, pinyon, juniper, sagebrush, and ponderosa pine. The original photopoint, which is just west and above the Kolob road, is now blocked by woody vegetation, so the retake was made from the nearest open area.
