Recreation of 1882 Mount Trumbull lithograph sheds light on landscape evolution

A lithograph from Mount Trumbull created during John Wesley Powell’s 1882 expedition provided an unusual adventure for GBI Research Associates. Todd Miller and Julianne Renner, working with the National Park Service, undertook the long, steep hike to the top of Mount Trumbull in order to generate photographic recreations of the lithograph. More than just an exercise in historical reenactment, comparisons of the lithograph and photographs illustrate how much the landscape has changed over the years, which may inform land management decisions in the Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument.
