Comments
General Comments: 
This meadow is very remote in the Hoover Wilderness. It is located in a large hanging glacial valley. The assessment was done right after all the snow melted which may have affected the vegetation results. Soil is coarse granite glacial till. Banks in place are tall and eroding, does not seem to be in a natural state even though it is remote. Much of the delineated is dry.
