Comments

Intermittent Streams
There are two intermittent streams on the site. The larger stream, labeled on the map, is shallow, wide, and often dry near the north boundary of the SNA. The smaller stream, not labelled but visible on the aerial map, is a deep but narrow gorge that can be easily hopped across near the western boundary of the SNA. Where the two streams meet there is a land bridge enabling an easy crossing.
