Photo Archive No. 60.1.2007.04

PS. 060. 09 April 2007. Facing north, Azimuth 10. Pasture 4. Elevation 1189 m. ISO 100, 35mm focal length, Canon 5D Digital Camera. Witness present, camera above. Mesquite alive, ocotillo, Calliandra in flower, Krameria in leaf, catclaw and velvet pod mimosa are small shrubs scattered in wash and before wash. Fire burned lightly across view in 2005, small mimosa and catclaw now resprouting but large ocotillo burned dead. Lehmann lovegrass dominant with many small plants recruited recently, also find sprucetop grama, and in wash find sprangletop. The distant right large tree present in 1914 and which looked dead in 1950, is still present as a snag. It was a very large mesquite, and I have not seen any this size on the Santa Rita. Compared to 2000, less grass and less ocotillo. M. McClaran photographer, C. McMurtry assistant.
