I start by walking up the road toward Howe Spring, spring #1 of 5 on today's hike
Date: May 26, 2011, 11h30
My new road, which I've not been on before, immediately drops into a sand-and-gravel drainage area
Uh oh, I hope this isn't one of these impossible desert roads. I consider turning around and following the longer, but more predictable route around this area, but decide to continue a bit further first, in case the road improves.
