Spring Monitoring on Pahute Peak

Time is short for writing as I prepare for my birthday hike, but this was an amazing 4-day desert backpack trip with Friends of Nevada Wilderness. We monitored springs, climbed Pahute Peak, and enjoyed good company. There are a lot of springs out there, but not much water! I gained new respect for the creatures who survive in this country.

Luckily, Brian did a great writeup!
