Approaching the tiny town of Nipton, California, population 20, with the Castle Peaks in the background

To my surprise, I find a small stream in this unnamed Castle Peaks canyon
No spring is marked on my maps at this location, so I wasn't expecting to find any water between my tent and Indian Spring, my destination, on the other side of Castle Peaks. The water is clean and some bees are enjoying the stream's periphery.
