Teeples Wash





Plate 118 TEEPLES WASH: 1945 - 1956 - 1999 The view is at the head of Teeples Wash approximately 400 yards northwest of Teeples Spring. This photo set is in the oppostie direction of that in Plate 117. The area was contour trenched, gully-plugged, and reseeded by the Forest Service sometime after 1956 to stop the erosion and improve range conditions. Aspen (Populus tremuloides) had regenerated shortly before the 1945 photo was taken, but there is no evidence of additional regeneration since. There are no conifers in these aspen stands.
