Plate 263. MAPLE HOLLOW 1941-2000 Plates 261-263 form a panorama across Maple Hollow from west to north. The earlier photos show the fence lines established by the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources to enclose the agency’s mule deer research facility (see Plates 177 and 178). This entire area was burned by a very hot wildfire during the fall of 1942 (see Plates 177, 178, and 265-267). Judging by the present vegetation, however, it is difficult to tell the area was once swept by a raging crown fire. Oakbrush is now 15-20 ft tall, while maple is 20-30 feet in height. True mountain mahogany and sagebrush have also recovered. Plate 263 is viewed north.
