Road To Brian Head




Plate 1363X. Road to Brian Head 1935 – 2006 Viewed north-northeast up the road to Brian Head. The trucks in the 1935 image were used by the CCC to build the road, which has been improved and today is passable to passenger cars during summer. Spruce have increased but most of the older trees were recently killed by insects and disease. The low-growing shrubs are currants, which appear to have increased.
