075_1_2007_04 APR 2007 1

Photo Archive No. 75.1.2007.04

PS. 75. 09 April 2007. Facing east, Azimuth 112. Pasture UA Cell. Elevation 1141 m. ISO 100, 35mm focal length, Canon 5D Digital Camera. Witness present, camera above. Mesquite alive, 50% burroweed dead, small catclaw in center midground, 2 Celtis behind, the second Celtis with graythorn in canopy; behind those find a large mesquite. No cacti. Lehmann lovegrass dominant with many small plants recently recruited, also find bush muhly under mesquite. Not confident this matches 1911 photo because Celtis in that photo are not present. Original probably upslope from here. Compared to 2000, less grass and less burroweed. M. McClaran photographer, C. McMurtry assistant.

Photo Archive No. 75.1.2009.03

PS. 75. 18 March 2009. Facing east, Azimuth 112. Pasture 11A. Elevation 1143 m. ISO 100, 35mm focal length, Canon 5D Digital Camera. Witness present, camera above. Mesquite alive, small catclaw in center midground, two Celtis behind, the second Celtis with graythorn in canopy; behind those find a large mesquite. No cacti. Lehmann lovegrass dominant with many small plants recently recruited, also find bush muhly under mesquite. Not confident this matches 1911 photo because Celtis in that photo are not present; the original is probably to the north about 100 m. Compared to 2007, more Lehmann lovegrass and threeawns, and decrease in Bouteloua aristidoides. M. McClaran photographer, A. Peterson assistant.
