The small spring just north of Wagontongue Mountain was nearly dry in spring
2009. (I *think* it was called "Damien Spring.") It was pretty hard to
find, even with the Wolf Guide's description.
There was also a windmill (two miles?) North of Damien Spring. (I think it
was Aragon Windmill??) This was full of green algea water when I visited,
and was not pumping, despite steady wind.
Finally, a trail angel left 10 gallons of water at NM Highway 12 one mile
north of Aragon Spring.
