yes! [In reply to] Can't Post

I am a geographer and I occasionally make maps, too. Somehow, a local university sees fit to let me teach these topics from time to time...

The hydrology question: I still need to read the textual description, but a brief look at Karen Wynn Fonstead's atlas and my initial guess would be "yes."

Snowmelt/heavy precipitation would definitely flow overland and collect in a low spot, like a mountain valley, and would the water would continue to flow down the mountainside due to gravity (i.e., a stream.) That would certainly account for seasonal stream formation (peak flows). If the water table is high enough to remain in contact with the valley floor, that would contribute to more permanent stream formation. Whether that valley is in a watershed/drainage basin that would eventually flow into the Anduin? That I would need to investigate further... (and now that I'm interested -- I will!)
