About this Area of Pando
The Cabins Section of the Pando Photographic Survey documents approximately 16 acres of Pando’s 106-acre land mass. The name for the section, comes from the predominance of cabins built on the northwestern edge of the tree. While it may be hard to believe, Pando hid in plains sight until 1976 and the cabins, nearby roads and recreational facilities were built up in a time before its discovery. The Cabins Section offers broad range of natural dynamics at play in Pando’s larger land mass moving from Pando’s steep upper side down to Utah Highway 25. The far edge of the area features tumultuous lava fields dotted with dense arrays of growth and regeneration while its outer boundaries feature larger voids dotted with older trees and pockets of new growth as you move up in elevation.
