SITE HISTORY

 

The Sawtooth Wilderness Area automatic photographic monitoring system was originally installed at the Sawtooth Valley forest station in January of 1987.  The system photographed Glens Peak to the southwest until the fall of 1989.  The camera was moved to the Galena Summit Overlook in October of 1989 in efforts to improve the target cover type (used in 35mm slide densitometry) and increase the site-path length.  The camera viewed Collie Ridge, 71 kilometers to the northwest, until October 2001.  All Collie Ridge Vista photographs are presented in a separate archive.

Photographs were taken at 09:00, 12:00, and 15:00 daily from 1987 through 1989.  Monitoring frequencies decreased to 12:00 only during the winter and spring seasons.  Over 1,700 35mm color slides of the Glens Peak Vista were reviewed to develop the provided historical photographic archive.
