Been out on a walk the last 4 weeks, so excuse me if these topics have been
1. I noticed what looked like a big drilling rig, digging a water well a
1/4 mile south of the Camp Anza Water Stash. They were set up right on the
fence line next to the dirt road that borders BLM land. So I am wondering.
Is there any chance that well is being dug for public access, or is it
involved with the network of roads in the area that looks like a empty
2. At the south end of the Piute Mountains between Golden Oaks Springs and
Hamp Williams Pass there is a nice quite spot were an east-west road
crosses the trail. (There is a "Miller Springs" labeled on the map just to
the west. Just on the north side of the road (private land) there is a
fancy looking wind monitor tower, but no wind turbines in the area yet. I
am wondering, is this a future site for more wind turbines? I was talking
to a person in Mojave who mentioned that the BLM was leasing land for Wind
Turbine installations. So in the process of building these wind turbine
sites, I would think there would be some opportunity for the public to give
there input into the whole process. Does anyone out there have a source of
information on future wind turbine sites along the PCT?
By the way, had a great trip. Thanks to Bob R. for Campo trailhead
support. Warner Springs was a great break. Got a good deal on a room in
the middle of the week. Apparently Tuesday is pool cleaning day, so a good
day to get a room. Whites Motel in Mojave was also a great break. I used
the towns of Palmdale, and Ridgecrest for bus transportation links. That
worked well for me.
