East Fork Of The Virgin River




Plate 541X. East Fork of the Virgin River 1932 – 2004 Viewed northeast up the East Fork of the Virgin River about one mile north of Glendale, UT. The channel has narrowed and is more heavily vegetated today than in the past, despite yearly livestock grazing on this private pasture. The woody species are primarily willows and box elder. Phragmites is also present. Tall oakbrush forms a band as the base of the hill. Pinyon and juniper appear to have increased.
