Plate 1256X. East Creek 1945 – 2006 Viewed southwest down the North Fork of East Creek in Bryce Canyon National Park. The early image was taken 10 years after the area was reseeded and check dams installed. This view is similar to Plate 1255x but taken with a longer focal-length lens. The road has been realigned, widened, and paved. Shrubs include bitterbrush, black sage, and rubber rabbitbrush. Ponderosa pine has increased. The Park Service recently ran a light surface fire through the pine stand south of the road. The double-trunked ponderosa pine across the road has died but is still standing.
