Bob - Did your route from Rawlins to Battle Pass include Bridger Pass Road - #3301? The only water there, other than brachish undrinkable brine, for quite some time was from BLM workers driving along this seldom traveled road? Mini Mart

When I did the Great Divide Basin last August, Sbound from S Pass 
City, there seemed to be enough water at the relatively recently improved BLM 
springs -- fenced from cows, covers over large, vertical pipes, and very clear 
water. I don't remember carrying more than a gallon at any one time. I got 
lucky with the temperatures, with the only "hot" day being when I walked into 
Rawlins. From Rawlins to Riverside/Encampment was no problem either; the Lazy 
Acres CG people were very nice last year, and this year gave me a ride to Battle
