To the south is no less of a view. The two streams through this basin runs in many channels attesting to the power of the spring runoff that cuts across the wide valley floor. Log jams and piles of gravel swept up and deposited in these events can be seen throughout the area. It also unearths many semi-precious stones from the surrounding area which are prized by rock hunters worldwide and who yearly ply the valley and surrounding area for petrified wood, garnets and other stones that make for fine lapidary work.
