Comments
General Comments: 
- Meadow has two sections, upper and lower - Upper meadow is wet, fed by runoff from a large ridge. Upper 1/3 of upper meadow is fairly sloped. Overall good channel to meadow surface connection, many wildflower present. - Lower meadow is wet, narrower than upper meadow and slightly sloped inwards towards channel. - Both meadow sections have some tiny conifers along channel and a fair amount of low willows along channel.
