Betenson Flat Beaver Mountain




Plate 230. BETENSON FLAT BEAVER MOUNTAIN 1944-2000 Viewed northeast across Betenson Flat (a.k.a. Dry Flat) on Beaver Mountain. In the original, a spike-tooth harrow was being used to prepare the area for reseeding - - see Plates 127-142 and 228. The photopoint for the retake had to be moved forward as the forest has grown-out and now blocks the original view. Part of the forest on the distant hillside was burned by the 1996 Pole Creek wildfire and subsequently salvage logged. A Forest Service road has also been added around the edge of the meadow.
