Jacks Peak




Plate 104. JACKS PEAK: 1961 - 1999 The view is over the head of Broad Canyon to Jacks Peak. The area had been contour trenched and seeded to prevent soil erosion shortly before the 1961 photo was taken. Although the aspen (Populus tremuloides) is taller in 1999 than in the 1961 photo, it has not regenerated. Conifers below Jacks Peak (1961 photo right-upper center) died sometime before 1999.
