Description:

Plate 153 THREE CREEKS RESERVOIR: 1948 - 1999 The 1948 photo shows the reservoir under construction. The 1999 photo was taken from the lower side of the road because conifers blocked the original photo point. Aspen (Populus tremuloides) has declined over the intervening years while conifers have increased.
