Right Hand Creek




Plate 1350X. Right Hand Creek 1941 – 2006 Viewed south up Right Hand Creek at its confluence with Coal Creek. Utah Highway 14, as well as the Cedar Mountain Road up Right Hand Creek, have been realigned, widened, and paved destroying the original camera station. Woody riparian vegetation appears to have increased as have pinyon, juniper, oakbrush, and other mountain brush species. In the distance, conifers have increased, while aspen has declined.
