    A tough trip down the Nescochague

    In my recent travels I have not been able to find one Vernal Pool in Wharton along a road that has not been driven into by off-roaders/mudders. (Tire tracks leading in, turbid water). Does anyone know of an example where one has not been trashed? I'm going to start tagging them on my GPS and...
