Fremont River

1962

1999

Description:

Plate 76. FREMONT RIVER: 1962 - 1999 This looks towards where the Fremont River enters Mill Meadow Reservoir. The 1962 camera station was destroyed by Utah highway 25 realignment and paving, thus the 1999 photo shows a slightly different perspective. Woody riparian vegetation along the river and pinyon (Pinus edulis) and juniper (Juniperus sp.) on the distant hillsides are more abundant in the 1999 photo than in 1962. Road reconstruction eliminated random camping in 1999, but livestock grazing continued.
