Pine Valley Peak

1942

2007

Description:

Plate 1436X. Pine Valley Peak 1942 – 2007 Viewed southeast to Pine Valley Peak (7,415 ft.) on the Kolob Plateau in Zion National Park. The original camera station is on the old road, which is below the present paved highway, and is now blocked by woody vegetation, so the retake was made from the nearest open area. Oakbrush, Utah serviceberry, pinyon, juniper, and ponderosa pine have all increased despite prescribe burning by the Park Service. The site is no longer grazed by livestock, though, deer and elk winter use is common.
