Podunk Creek




Plate 295X. Podunk Creek 1964 - 2003 Viewed southeast up Podunk Creek on the Paunsaugunt Plateau. Shown in the original image is a D-7 cat constructing contour trenches. This entire area was reseeded by the Forest Service with smooth brome, intermediate grass, and Kentucky bluegrass to control erosion and improve range conditions. Spruce, ponderosa pine, and juniper have all increased, while aspen has declined. The trees along the creek in the retake were partially blocked from view in the 1964 image by the D-7 cat. The shrubs are mostly rubber rabbitbrush with a few shrubby cinquefoil along the stream.
