Pinaleños Mts. – SIA Springs Assessment

August 3-4, 2013

Springs assessment weekend in the Pinaleños Mountains. Stayed near Treasure Park. SIA is assessing springs for the Forest Service before they do thinning and controlled burning. Treasure Park itself is a wet meadow with another spring just above it that is being tapped for drinking water. The area has gotten much abuse as a camping area but it looks as if they are trying to keep people off of the meadow itself. Had a real botanist show up, got a really good assessment of the plant life.
