Description:

Plate 182. BELOW MORONI PEAK 1916-2000 Plates 180-182 form a panorama from the southwest to the northeast below Moroni Peak. Plate 182 is viewed northeast down Pine and Little Creeks to Salina and Meadow Creek Canyons. I-70, access roads, and a new allotment fence are visible in the retake. Pinyon-juniper and other conifers have increased markedly, especially on the more distant hillsides. The Forest Service has, however, burned some areas along Pine and Little Creeks. Oakbrush has also increased.
