Shiver Creek




Plate 1316X. Shiver Creek 1942 – 2006 Viewed east down Shiver Creek on Cedar Mountain. Black Mountain (10,400 ft) is on the left skyline, while Navajo Peak (10,388 ft) is on the right-center. The road-cut for Utah Highway 14 is visible in the distance. Aspen has increased in height but most stands have not successfully regenerated for many years due to excessive ungulate herbivory (Ohms 2003). Oakbrush in the distance has increased, as have conifers. Aspen saplings now block the original view, so the retake was made a few feet forward. The haze in the retake is from wildfires in Nevada.
