Close-up of Bear Spring.
A healthy trickle of fresh spring water is entering the spring tub. The water is quite clean and tastes great. And it stays fairly cool here in the shade.
This is the first cool water I've had today, so I feel like drinking a gallon of it on the spot. My water from Willow Ridge Spring was good this morning; it had cooled down to below luke-warm overnight.
I pump enough water to fill my 10-litre water bag (22 pounds) and my two-litre Camelbak. Of course, the water will have warmed up by the time I get back to Mississippi Lake.
