Pass Creek




Plate 1070X. Pass Creek 1951 – 2005 Viewed southeast down Pass Creek. This untreated section of gully is approximately 200 yards below the section where the cutbanks have been graded by the Forest Service. Nonetheless, the banks on this untreated section have naturally stabilized and are more vegetated today than in the past. Rubber rabbitbrush, currant, bitterbrush, snowberry, and green rabbitbrush are common in the gully. The entire area has been over-seeded with smooth brome and crested wheatgrass. The road visible above the gully on the right in the 1951 image has been relocated further up the slope. Pinyon, juniper, and ponderosa pine have increased in the distance.
