Heading up the road away from Mississippi Lake (this is actually still part of Willow Ridge Road)
I consider going for a hike up the nearby Bear Mountain Peak Trail, but it has turned into a really hot day and today is my lazy day.
After deciding that the water from Mississippi Lake tastes too dirty to keep drinking, I opt for the two-mile (four-miles round-trip), mostly flat walk to Bear Spring to load up on better water.
I leave the bicycle at home.
I visited Bear Spring at this time last year and remember that its water was pretty good.
