Coal Creek




Plate 1345X. Coal Creek 1920 – 2006 Viewed southeast up Coal Creek east of Cedar City. Utah Highway 14 has been realigned, widened, and paved off the photo to the left. Pinyon and juniper now block the original photopoint, so the retake was made from the nearest open area. Pinyon and juniper have increased, as has woody riparian vegetation along Coal Creek. Oakbrush, conifers, and mountain brush have also increased.
