Harris Flat




Plate 565X. Harris Flat 1953 – 2004 Viewed north-northwest across Harris Flat just north of Utah Highway 14. The original photograph was taken to document “a gully well stabilized by western wheatgrass”. Forage production was less in the retake, however, due to the extended drought - - the site had not been grazed by livestock in 2004. Ponderosa pine, pinyon, and juniper have all increased.
