Red Canyon




Plate 138X. Red Canyon ca. 1915-2003 Viewed northeast at the mouth of Red Canyon. The Sevier fault separates the dark-colored basalt on the left from the light-colored Wasatch limestone, or Bryce formation, on the right. Wyoming big sage (A. t. tridentata) has increased and many plants are now 5 to 6 feet tall. Pinyon and juniper have also increased. The rock formations, though, appear largely unchanged.
