Detailed Description


This zoomed-in view from the hill above the Harmony Borax Works shows the Furnace Creek area and the Black Mountains along the east side of southern Death Valley. This view illustrates how Athel tamarisk (Tamarix aphylla (L.) Karst [USDA, 2010b]) has spread throughout the stream channels on the Furnace Creek alluvial fan. For comparison, see an aerial photograph of the area taken 55 years earlier).
