This photo pair shows two views of the open subalpine landscape of the upper West Fork of the Chulitna River. The main fork of the river bends to the north in the background. What changes are visible in the vegetation or landscape between these two photos? Hint: Look to the river bar and to the rocky knoll in the foreground.
