So I'm pretty sure it is from there.
Most of the water I used was from the Rock House just past the backside of the Indian Staircase. I also got water once in the walk up from the trailhead. I am not sure of the trailhead, but it was about 4 miles into the backside of the stairs. I treated most of my water, but dipped and sipped at least once from both sources.
Just thought I would throw that out there. But if you want to find out whether your water treatments works, this would be a good real world test.
sorry to hear that.
were you going native, using the Steripen that was acting screwy like mine at Mt. Rogers, or something else?
