Taylor Creek





Plate 1470X. Taylor Creek 1906 – 2007 – 2007 This photoset is similar to Plate 1468x but the view is more to the right. The confluence of the North and South Forks of Taylor Creek is on the lower left, while on the skyline ( r.) are Horse Ranch Mountain (8,726 ft.), Tucupit Point (7,375 ft.), and Paria Point. As juniper now block part of the original view, a second retake was made from the nearest open area. Pinyon and juniper have increased as have mountain brush species including gambel oak, Utah serviceberry, turbinella oak, and birchleaf mountain mahogany. Visible in the retakes is the park road to Kolob Canyons Viewpoint.
