Comments
General Comments: 
- Very dry meadow - Old cut tree stumps and a truncated stone wall in middle meadow, perhaps from previous use (grazing?) - Two headcuts, semi-stable (some grass growing back on the face of the cuts), but may only be stable because there is no flow to move headcut - Many hummocks with bare ground inbetween - Invasive bull thistle present - Meadow is adjacent to a Teichert aggregate property
