Censuses of bird populations were the objective this summer as in 1952. This year, because of the limited time available, all efforts were concentrated on Indian Paintbrush Canyon. This canyon was chosen in 1952 as being a good example of a Teton canyon and one with a topography easy to traverse. The trail runs its entire length from the valley level at Spring Lake to the divide between its summit and Leigh and Cascade canyons at 10,500 feet. The ascent is more nearly constant than in some of the other canyons and it has good vegetation representing practically all the types found in the canyons. Project Number 69.
