Comments
General Comments: 
8 miles from Corral Valley TH. Abundant sage brush encroachment up to the channel at some points. The upper meadow is more sloped and the channel probably does not access the floodplain. There is a pinch in the meadow with flatter gradient below it. Areas that looked to be previously unstable are starting to be stabilized by grass and willow. Paiute Cutthroat Habitat.
