Meadow is relatively steep, lending to large number of headucts and a high vulnerability to further meadow loss/degradation. Below confluence of north and south arms meadow becomes naturally constrained to a narrow corridor by step walls. Very bottom of meadow is all willow. Bottom half of the north arm is incised with new meadow inset floodplain. Sage terrance above the new floodplain. Upper north arm has several channels and headcuts with some larger portitions of healthy meadow. Headcut locations on the map are approximate.
