In Lordsburg having started on 12 March at Crazy Cook TH.
Notes: All data points are Bear Creek, did not see ANY natural water or ponds or tanks in Seg 1 or 2.
All 5 bear box caches were good for water: Sheridan Cyn (1-137), Hw 81 (1-255), Hw 9 (2-194), Hw 113 (3-127), Water box (4-198).
Dry or nothing: Vista Tank (3-38), New Coyote Tank (3-07), Williams Tank (4-82), and unknowns Private Tanks (2-023,2-133) & Private Pond (4-49).
Surprise water in tractor tire, from spring (3-065).
Segment 4: A lot of water here as trail enters higher terrain.
(4-032) Lower Camp Tank-Gate to pass through with 2 round troughs.
(4-095) Private Tank-Large round trough with algae.
On road walk btw miles 14 & 18.5, Private Tanks (4-154, 4-161) old and off.
Calf pens: At Rockhouse Seep (at sharp right turn, just beyond (4-161) and at road gate at (4-175), both had water.
Lastly, at (4-186) just where you leave road walk, there is a large tank with corral troughs, can use ladder to get best water from inlet pipe.
It is a dry spring so far, had high 80s and 90s, not fun!
