East Pass Reseeding




Plate 1066X. East Pass Reseeding 1957 – 2005 Viewed south-southwest along two of the Parker Three-Step Transect on lower Pass Creek. The area in the foreground was root-plowed and reseeded with crested wheatgrass a few years prior to when the 1957 image was made. Rubber rabbitbrush, green rabbitbrush and three-tipped sage have begun to invade the site, but the seeding is still largely intact despite yearly livestock grazing, which, at times, has been heavy - - see Plates 1062x and 1063x. Pinyon, juniper, and ponsderosa pine have increased in the distance. The area was actively being grazed by cattle in 2005. The original negative is out-of-focus.
