Went on a real nice hike yesterday into one of the canyons leading up into The Sierra La Gata. One of my village friends, Luice, invited me and Alan to see the spring on his Rancho. This is a 24/7, year round spring of crystal clear water coming out of the arroyo very near the Indian paintings about 1 mile away. I am pretty convinced that this was a sacred area for those early inhabitants.
It is a truly beautiful little oasis. It was a very hot day yesterday (102 degrees ? on the way back) but Alan and I got an early start and of course the "oasis" was refreshing.
