Photo Archive No. 78.1.2010.03

PS. 078. 26 March 2010 1:35 PM. Facing north, Azimuth 20. Pasture 11B. Elevation 1149 m. ISO 100, 35mm focal length, Canon 5D Mark II Digital Camera. Rebar (white) place 6 m north of Road 488 and inside small fence/gate blocking road created to service fire-fighting helicopter during 2005 July fire. Comparing the background and size of mesquite, it is likely that the 1915 photo was not taken from this location, and similarly, the 1930 and 1935 photos were not from this location. The 1930 and 1935 photo were taken in the same location, but different from the 1915 location. All photos taken since 1984 were from this current location. Mesquite alive, Calliandra common small shrub, velvet pod mimosa bottom left, catclaw midground left, very few scattered snakeweed plants. Lehmann lovegrass dominant, sideoats grama, and cottontop, also present; Setaria and cottontop under mesquite. A few small cholla present. Clear conditions. Compared to 2007, no threeawns or green sprangletop. M. McClaran photographer, A. Dalke assistant.
