Cedar City




Plate 1322X. Cedar City 1925 – 2006 Viewed northwest to Cedar City from Lone Tree Mountain. Conifers now block the original camera station, so the retake was made from the nearest open area on the Kolob Reservoir Road. Spruce, white fir, Douglas fir, pinyon, juniper, and oakbrush have all increased, while aspen has declined. New roads and homes have been built. Coal Creek in the distance is more vegetated today than it was in the past.
