A 16 mile day that ended with us at Oak Creek where we will camp for the night. The water in the creek would be ok if I was dying, but not before. It was nearly stagnant, green with a tinge of orange. Fortunately someone has stocked a bunch of water at the road crossing so the gals brought me a gallon when they went to get some for themselves. Phew!
We are back in windmill territory. Here is a very large tree next to the machines.
I also came across a tiger tank (brand name) with an attached shower. Not working but it sure would have been nice. I'd like to know how it got there and what it was used for.
Another sweet surprise was a trail magic water cache, thanks to Daniel and Larry. Right out in the middle of nowhere.
For writing in...
Finally, though my iPhone doesn't do them justice I'll show some of the wild flowers we saw today. The smell of fields of flowers was striking.
