Comments
General Comments: 
Relatively accessible but within the wilderness. Currently being grazed with significant impact. Should probably be rested from grazing. Lots of stagnant water, algae blooms, and fish kills in downstream area. Severely trampled banks. Very botoom of the delineated area is steep.
