Little Lost Creek




Plate 218. LITTLE LOST CREEK 1945-2000 The valley bottom was root-plowed and reseeded in 1943 to eliminate sagebrush and to stimulate production of grasses and forbs, but sagebrush has since reinvaded the area. Viewed northeast up Yopa Swale. Pinyon and juniper have also increased dramatically despite the fact that the lower hillsides were treated to eliminate those species. Fire has also killed some trees on top of the hill (photo left) in the retake.
