Antimony

1932

Description:

Plate 204X. Antimony 1932 - 2003 Viewed northwest at the mouth of Kings Hollow one mile south of Antimony, Utah. The original photograph was taken to document the soil and gravel that had eroded from the upper watershed during rainfall events. The roadway was not only flooded, but debris filled-in the eastside irrigation canal for a distance of 3 miles. Today, there is no evidence of soil erosion or recent flood events. Utah Highway 22 is visible in the retake. Sagebrush and four-wing saltbrush (Atriplex canescens) have colonized the gravel outwash.
