Teeples Wash





Plate 114 TEEPLES WASH: 1945 - 1956 - 1999 The view is at the head of Teeples Wash approximately 500 yards above Teeples Spring. Soil erosion and gullying were active in the 1945 and 1956 photos. Shortly after 1956 the area was contour trenched, gully-plugged, and reseeded by the Forest Service, which stopped the erosion and improved range conditions. The aspen (Populus tremuloides) stand on the ridge had regenerated a few years prior to 1945, but there is no evidence of additional regeneration in more recent years. Note the standing water behind the gully plug in the 1999 photo.
