The denuded forground area has improved to the point where the site has nearly 100 percent plant cover with plant species such as sage brush, sandberg bluegrass, thickspike wheatgrass, intermediate wheatgrass (introduced), sagebrush, mountain snowberry and slender cinquefoil. A narrow wet zone has developed immediately behind the photopoint.
