Several years back, some friends & I hiked that loop. We went through a long stretch w/o seeing water. We were running low & didn't know when we would come to another source, but we saw a few seeps along the trail.
You know, the kind were a long line of drops are coming of a rock & soaking right into the ground below.
Holding a water bottle under even the fastest of drips would be a slow way to get water, so I took out a clean trash bag & formed a long basin under the line of drips. I used small logs to form sides on the basin.
We soon had all the water we wanted & pumped it into our water containers.
don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!
