Comments
General Comments: 
- Gravel mill next to meadow - Upper section of meadow is wet and healthy, with lots of surface sheet flow - Becomes channelized a few hundred yards above culvert (road crossing) - Section between culvert and mill/berm is wet and willow is plentiful - Halfway through the mill there is a breached berm or old bridge buttress that collects water in pools - Below berm the meadow is driver, more forb dominated, and less willow is present. The banks are also less stable - Meadow ends at Stampede Reservoir
