City Creek




Plate 64. CITY CREEK: 1964 - 1999 Plates 63 and 64 form a panorama viewed east-southeast from Utah Highway 153 across City Creek watershed. The 1964 photos were taken during the spring and the oak brush (Quercus gambelii) in the foreground was not leafed out. The 1999 photos were taken from a slightly different location because oak brush blocked the original view. Pinyon (Pinus edulis) and juniper (Juniperus sp.) increased by 1999 on many hillsides throughout the photos.
