Thompson Ledge




Plate 42X. Thompson Ledge 1935-2002 Viewed north from Thompson Ledge to four corners in Boulder, Utah - - with Boulder Mountain in the distance. Pinyon and juniper have increased and now block the original camera station, so the retake was made from the nearest open area. Various domestic trees have increased, but willows have declined as fields were cleared for irrigation.
