Saunter, Heiko, and I were the ones that left the gallon jug -- a
professional photographer named Jim Kern left 3 gallons for us, but we only
used 2. Glad to hear the 3rd was used by a hiker. -Ron

J Ley nm23 point 1.(This is 500 yards south of the Zuni Acoma Trail head..)
It is true the windmill here was dissassembled.
But it has been converted to electric well (not solar) and is locked up
tighter than fort knox.
Don't bother with it.. However follow the hose NoBo 100 yards to where it
crosses under the highway through a culvert pipe. Look left(West) and you
will find two big red half-tanks(100 gallons each) and a smaller 55 gallon.
They were all full as of 5-13.
I examined the valve sytem for the locked well and they can either send
water accross the road or to the tank by the well itself.
Also, some kind soul left a gallon jug of water at the Zuni Acoma trailhead
as well.
