Thanks to Charlie and Karl for commenting on my list of water sources.
Scissors Crossing, especially, can be risky due to low water and the cattle
problem. I always check the direction of the flow before dipping in a place
like that. I filtered and iodined the hell out of it, if I remember
correctly! I can only add that carrying LOTS of water from Scissors
Crossing will make the 24-mile traverse of the San Felipe Hills more
tolerable. In '96 I dealt with it by leaving Scissors Cr. at about 4:30 pm
(with 8 quarts of water) and getting as far as I could before dark. I rose
very early the next morning and arrive at Barrel Spring around 1 pm. It
worked out well!
