Plate 460X. Kitchen Canyon 1932 – 2004 Viewed east down Kitchen Canyon about one mile below Nipple Lake - - see Plates 457x, 458x, and 459x. The gully has continued to erode, as the valley fill is nearly pure sand. Headwall cutting, however, has been stopped by two large gully-plugs about one-half mile up stream near the old stone cabin. Flowing water in the canyon bottom supports willows and tamarisk. Sagebrush, four-wing saltbrush, rubber rabbitbrush, yellow bee weed, globe mallow, and Indian rice grass are the most common plants on the dry benches.
