The areas covered by these field outings which took place on 7/25/08 and 7/30/08 include the South Fork trail, Horse Meadow, Poopout Hill and Poopout Meadow, and the flume trail from Poopout Hill to South Fork Meadows. Thanks to San Bernardino National Forest botanist Scott Eliason for his invaluable assistance.
