Teeples Wash





Plate 113 TEEPLES WASH: 1945 - 1956 - 1999 The view is across the head of Teeples Wash just above Teeples Spring. The phot-set is similar to Plate 112 except that the photo point is higher on the hill. 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.
