336_1_2007_10 OCT 2007 1

Photo Archive No. 336.1.2007.10

PS. 336. 04 October 2007. Facing east northeast. Pastures 6B and 6D. Elevation ???? m. ISO 100, 35mm focal length, Canon 5D Digital Camera. No witness present, camera and tripod on small shelf on north side of Huerfano Butte. This location is approx. 10 m south southeast of original PS 332, and is on east side of Butte N-S ridgeline. This view matches earlier photos (1950, 1967, 1986, and 2000 - 332.2.2000.11.2) and all earlier and this new photo should be grouped as a separate photo station (336.1). View below Butte shows many of the same Celtis plants and possibly catclaw plants as present in 1902 image, but the wash morphology has changed so main channel now slightly more south. The changed appears to have happened before 1950. No major differences compared to 2000 image. Similar view as PS 332.2. M. McClaran photographer, K Predick assistant.

The changed appears to have happened before 1950. Similar view as PS 332.2. In 2007, mesquite on both sides of road were cut to base for new fence.
