POOPOUT MEADOW, SAN GORGONIO WILDERNESS AUGUST 2008

Photographs by Michael Charters




Poopout Meadow is south of Poopout Hill and adjacent to the South Fork Meadows Trail in the San Bernardino National Forest. It is watered by what is know as the flume or Jenk's Ditch, a man-made water diversion project begun in 1922 that more or less parallels the South Fork trail all the way from the headwaters of the Santa Ana River to Jenks Lake. An upside-down V next to the common name indicates a taxon that was new to me when I photographed it on this field trip.
