Wolf Mountain Vista

Photographic Archive 1985 - 1992






The Diamond Peak Wilderness manual photographic monitoring system began operation in July of 1985.  USFS personnel took photographs from the Cinnamon Butte Lookout Tower, viewing Wolf Mountain 43.4kilometers to the north.  Concurrent photographs of Twin Lakes (40.2 kilometers to the west) and Bald Crater (24.3 kilometers to the southwest) were also taken from the lookout tower.  At the start of the 1991 monitoring season, individual automatic camera systems were installed to take photographs of the three targets. 

Photographs were taken at 09:00, 12:00, and 15:00 daily during the summer and fall seasons.  Over 7,100 35mm color slides were reviewed to develop the provided historical photographic archive.  All Bald Crater photographs are presented in a separate archive representing the Sky Lakes Wilderness.
