Comments
General Comments: 
The meadow is much smaller than remotely estimated. The majority of the area is a large sage flat. The meadow extends from a watering pit to a water tank at the top. Close to the water tank at the top of the meadow is a headcut. The headcut is close to an old road. It is unstable but does not threaten much of the meadow.
