Teeples Wash




Plate 112 TEEPLES WASH: 1945 - 1999 The view is across the head of Teeples Wash just above Teeples Spring. This view is from the same approximate location but in the opposite direction as that in Plate 111. The area was contour trenched, gully-plugged, and reseeded by the Forest Service sometime after 1945. The tall herbaceous plant in the foreground of the 1999 photo is coneflower (Rudbeckia occidentalis), an indicator of past overgrazing. Aspen (Populus tremuloides) stands show little evidence of regenerating.
