Comments
General Comments: 
Meadow straddles divide. No continuous channel present, mostly overland flow except where stringers enter the meadow from the south. These channels dissipate once the enter the meadow. PCT armoring is causing some headcutting. A wood framework was set below the meadow surface and this has established a small dam that is being undercut.
