Flake Mountain




Plate 178X. Flake Mountain 1920 - 2003 Viewed northwest from the western most edge of Flake Mountain. Casto Peak (9,580 ft.) is on the left skyline, while Flat Top (9,374 ft.) is on the right. Most of the larger ponderosa pines seen in the original have been logged, but the pine forest has actually increased. Much of the area between the camera and the pines was treated and reseeded by the Forest Service during the early 1950’s. Nonetheless, sagebrush and rubber rabbitbrush have increased. The old horse trail has been replaced by an eroded vehicle track.
