Plate 408X. Pasture Wash 1961 – 2004 Viewed north-northwest up Pasture Wash. The distant cliffs are in Bryce Canyon National Park. The area in the foreground was root-plowed and reseeded with crested wheatgrass during the late 1950’s. Nevertheless, mountain big sage, pinyon, juniper, oakbrush, and ponderosa pine have all increased, while grasses have declined. The area was not grazed by cattle in 2004. Mule deer use was very light and elk sign was not observed. The photopoint is on the northside of a very large boulder into which the name Rex Tetcher is carved.
