Questions for Photos 3 & 4

1. Compare Photos 3 and 4. What is different about the type and amount of vegetation? Do there appear to have been greater numbers of trees in the 1930s or in the early 1970s?

2. How do you think the animal population on Catoctin Mountain might have changed over the same period?

3. What do you think the area might look like today?

* The photos on this screen have a resolution of 72 dots per inch (dpi), and therefore will print poorly. You can obtain a high quality version of Photo 3 and Photo 4, but be aware that each file will take as much as 30 seconds to load with a 28.8K modem.
