Parson Webster Cabin




Plate 1303X. Parson Webster Cabin 1917 – 2002 – 2006 Viewed west to the Parson Webster Cabin below Miners Peak on Cedar Mountain. The original photopoint is now blocked by a regrowth of aspen, so the retakes were taken further to the east and offer a more distant view. The area has been reseeded with orchard grass and smooth brome. The cabin site has now been fenced to exclude livestock, though, it is still used during fall by cattle. Historically the area was grazed first by dairy cattle and then more heavily by domestic sheep (Ohms 2003).
