Another Mt. Langley report is not really needed, but I found something on Saturday I have never seen before. I had started up Army Pass with less than a liter of water, and knew I would be thirsty before the day was out. But I was surprised to encounter this, west of the main summit and a couple of hundred feet lower. North of the beaten track.

The water is delicious, obviously stays in a melted state throughout the summer, and there is no source of contamination other than what the wind brings in. Take a handkerchief or something similar to strain out the surface dust before you drink.

Nice find Bob. Thanks for sharing, and congratulations on making the summit, and meeting Ranger Laura.

This reminds me of the song, Cool, Cool Water -- only this time the water is for real!


The body betrays and the weather conspires, hopefully, not on the same day.
