Plate 528X. Glendale, UT 1909 – 2004 Viewed southwest to the lower end of Glendale, UT. Pinyon and juniper have increased, as has woody riparian vegetation, primarily cottonwoods, along the East Fork of the Virgin River. Utah serviceberry, bitterbrush, and birchleaf mountain mahogany have also increased. Sagebrush, though, has declined due to the growth of other woody species. Note the Glendale cemetery in the original (photo lower-right) and the retake. There is little evidence of pinyon and juniper having been cut in the 1909 image. Pinyon and juniper now block the original camera station, so the retake was made from the nearest open area.
