Plate 1485X. Hebron 1903 – 2007 Viewed west-southwest to the town of Hebron on Shoal Creek west of Enterprise, Utah. The town was damaged by an earthquake in 1902 and later abandoned (Alder and Brooks 1996:190). Pinyon and juniper now block the original camera station, so the retake was made from the nearest open area. Rubber rabbitbrush dominates the former townsite, while sagebrush has increased in the foreground. Pinyon and juniper have invaded the distant hills. Fish Creek Hollow has formed a 10 ft. deep gully about 100 yards in front of the camera - - this is the line in the sagebrush running from right to left in the retake. The road up Fish Creek Hollow is hidden from view by the tall sage. Shoal Creek (photo left) is not visible as that view is blocked by the toe of the alluvial fan once occupied by Hebron.
