REPORT OB PROPOSED ELIMINATIONS
CACHE NAT I ON AT, FOREST
'I By J. I. Rothery, Deputy Supervisor.
The boundaries.sf the Cache National Forest are,
on the vjhole, well drawn. The long chain of mountains,
tapering toward the north, and separating Cache and Bear
Lake Valoys,has a fairly good natural line, which in general has been sucB as to include all forest land, excepting such strips and patches of agricultural land as occurred
at canyon mouths and on adjacent jogs and flats.
Therefore, ths boundary question here becomes
one cB strict elimination of small areas, a refinement
of tBe pr - sent lino, with tBo two fold purpose Of excluding all non-forest land, and obtaining at the same time, a
lino conforming to the topography of the country. "Forty
Lines" have been followed alien either sf tho above aims
could be more nearly approximated thereby.
The eliminations mere larger on the Bear Lake
aide, due to th fact that the country is more rolling and
not so steop and rocky as tho Cache Valley slopes.
Commencing then at Soda Point in T. 9 8, .B, 41 E.
