A southwest-facing view of Medicine Lodge Peak. Sean Claffey holds a printed and flipped copy of historic aerial imagery showing conifer infill and expansion from 1954 to present day; the top of the paper is oriented south, the bottom north, and historic imagery is on the right while current imagery is on the left. The Southwest Montana Sagebrush Partnership (SMSP) recently collaborated to restore conifers on this slope to within their historic range.
