This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1904 edition. Excerpt: ...tributary of the Middle Fork of Mill Creek, cutting into the central areas of the township from the north. Mining.--None. Soil.--Gravel, with thin surface layers of loam; very stony and bowlder-strewn on the slopes and in the bottoms of the canyons. Agricultural adaptability.--No portion is lit for agriculture; the tract is too stony and the altitude too great. Grazing capacity.--The subalpine and alpine areas are mostly grassy and suitable for sheep pasture, but are practically inaccessible. Drainage conditions.--The run-off is large and is carried by tributaries of Mill Creek. Lakelets and tarns are lacking, but the tract is well supplied with springs, marshy tracts, and creeks, and forms a natural reservoir for much of the Mill Creek flow. Snow and rock slides.--Infrequent. Towns arid settlements.--None. Forest conditions.--The forested areas are confined to the canyons in the central portions of the township, the high areas on the north, east, and south being situated above timber line. The stands are of medium density, thinning out near the 9,500foot contour to small copses and narrow lines. In the lower areas lodgepole pine and Engelmann spruce are the prevailing species, largely in old growth stands. At higher altitudes the typical subalpine forest constitutes the stands. The timber is accessible by way of Mill Creek, but only with great difficulty and expense. Cutting.--None. Bums.--None. Reprodvetion.--Deficient in the subalpine areas but abundant in the stands on the lower elevations. Most of the young growth is composed of spruce. Undergrowth.--Light. Litter.--There is a small amount in the stands in the canyon bottoins: very little in the stands on the subalpine areas. Humus.--There is a thin layer of moss and pine more
