Comments
General Comments: 
This meadow is extremly remote in the Hoover Wilderness. Cannot stress enough how remote it is. There were horse tracks in the meadow. Meadow is in amazing shape. There are willows stabilizing the banks. There are ponds in the meadow. Mountain yellow-legged frog was spotted.
