I take an energy bar (mmm, chocolate) break behind a boulder pile; it's really windy up here at 6015 feet elevation

Well, here it is, Summit Spring, Mojave National Preserve, a disgusting concentrate of cow shit and water
Usually, I like to linger at a desert spring and enjoy the specialness of moisture in a dry country. But not here at Summit Spring. The scent of the rotting cow shit is sickening in the hot sun and the flies buzzing around it are annoying.
