Overall plant cover has increased as evidenced by a decrease in interspace size and frequency. Some of the other plant species on site include Mormon tea, winterfat, rabbitbrush, snakeweed, squirreltail, curlygrass, blue grama, and globemallow. Exotic species such as cheatgrass and storksbill are also present. Vegetation conditions inside of the fenced right-of-way (visible in the 1998 photograph about 75 feet from the photopoint) are very similar to the foreground area that is still grazed by cattle. The deep sandy loams found here are moderately productive if an annual precipitation level of about 10 inches is maintained.
