This photo pair is an aerial view of the confluence of the Bull River (smaller stream) with the West Fork of the Chulitna River (larger, grey-colored river). This is also the site where the jeep trail to Silver King Mine site crosses the Bull River This photo pair reveals some establishment of vegetation along the far bank of Bull river, extending out into the Chulitna floodplain. Can you find other places where the vegetation has changed between the two image dates?
