Plate 1026X. Clayton Dugway 1957 – 2005 Viewed southeast along line two of the Parker Three-Step Transect at Clayton Dugway northeast of Panguitch Lake. Utah Highway 143 is in the distance. The area in the foreground was root-plowed and reseeded with crested wheatgrass a few years before the first image was made. With time, however, mountain big sagebrush has reinvaded the site. Bitterbrush is also present. Panguitch Creek is at the base of the hill in the distance. Ponderosa pine and juniper have increased.
