North Fork Of Chalk Creek Pavant Mountains




Plate 304. NORTH FORK OF CHALK CREEK PAVANT MOUNTAINS 1963-2000 Plates 304 and 305 form a panorama from northeast to east-northeast on the ridge between the North Fork of Chalk Creek (photo left) and Chokecherry Creek in the Pavant Mountains. This area was treated with a Dixie harrow and reseeded to eliminate sagebrush, but sagebrush has reinvaded the site. Snowberry is the darker-colored shrub. The fence has been removed. Aspen has not regenerated due to excessive browsing. Plate 304 is viewed northeast to Jacks Peak (10,072 ft) and Willow Creek Peak (9,765 ft).
