Gunk on my water filter intake tube from Clark Spring.
The flower bits wipe off easily from the filter's tube. Despite the mess, this water tastes pretty good. For one thing, it's a bit cooler than the air, so it feels really good when I drink it.
Pumping was getting rather slow and tight, so I only partially filled my water bag. I guess the inside of the filter needs another brushing to clean it up. I'll try some Jackrabbit Lake water tomorrow once my filter has been cleaned.
I walk back to the tent with my water bag slung over my shoulder.
