Orderville, Utah




Plate 548X. Orderville, UT 1900- 2004 Viewed north-northwest to Orderville, UT. Pinyon and juniper now block the original photopoint, so the retake was made from the nearest open area, which is at a slightly higher elevation and a little further to the right. Cottonwoods have increased along the East Fork of the Virgin River. Pinyon and juniper have also increased. The smoke seen on the skyline in the retake is from a small wildfire that was quickly suppressed by federal agencies.
