Comments
General Comments: 
We were unable to get on the ground in this meadow but we viewed it from above with binoculars. It is completely ringed by cliffs expect for a small outlet. Inside a terminal moraine. Is located below 2 outlets of Lost Lakes. There is a massive beaver pond at the bottom of the meadow that covers around 20% of the meadow. Willow covers about 60% of the meadow.
