Wenaha Panorama

Joseph Stewart and David Rheinheimer

This panorama was taken at site 8 in the middle of transect 1 (on river right on the Wenaha River). A narrow band of riparian vegetation occupies the steep banks on this side of the river. The riparian vegetation on the other side of the river—where sediment is deposited—is much more expansive. A cobble bar and side channel are followed by thick riparian vegetation and abandoned channels.

Within the riparian vegetation, white alder and ponderosa pine trunks are readily apparent. Also visible are mock orange (not flowering), Woods’ rose, snowberry and service berry. The terrace opposite the river has likely undergone some disturbance. Young ponderosa pines and annual grasses dominate the terrace.
