Suspicious People ?

Suspicious People ?

YUP, I got 'suckered in' on that suspicious SP Site Feedback thread! Recently, my wife and I enjoyed a hike to AZ's San Francisco Peaks area. This natural spring is located right outside the 'Kachina Wilderness' boundary, approximately 1.5 miles up the Inner Basin Trail. The springs in the Inner Basin supply some of Flagstaff's water, but are covered and locked, so it's necessary to carry your own water. Here, where the sign reads, "UNTREATED SPRING WATER," you can obtain your own drinking water with an adequate FILTER. Because of sub-freezing temperatures, this water source is only available from mid-May to mid-October. If you continue through the Inner Basin to the Weatherford Trail, you can turn left 100 feet on the Weatherford for a great panorama looking back at the Inner Basin and the Painted Desert far beyond. And ... if you see these two shady characters hanging OUT at the "UNTREATED SPRING WATER" sign, don't be alarmed! They were probably just posing for a picture on Summitpost! In fact, I washed my cotton socks (by hand) just so they'd look good for this picture ............ NOT!!! :)) July 2, 2008

them are some suspicious folks alright. Hang onto your wallet and run right by so you'll be safe. Paysonites I think.

Re: Yup,

Dean, I thought you were out eating BAR-B-qued
hotdogs and beans.

Actually, we got caught in a thunderstorm
(in the meadows) after this pic was taken, and
had to HIDE under a fir tree.

Hey Larry

both of you look like your having a good day out.
I had an e-mail from a dodgy nigerian called miss mimi the other day, and was reading some threads related to this. Seems your a bit of a dodgy character!!!, however when I looked closer so was I. LOL. Big brother is always watching, unfortunately thats the day and age we live in. Thats why we seek the solitude that the hills have to offer. To get away from the fucking rat race.

Re: Hey Stephen ..

lol - I couldn't agree with you more! Perhaps
the 'miss mimi' wanted to listen to the tune
'One Of These Days' from Pink Floyd's'Meddle'
album; while sipping a bit of Scotch whiskey
on the side. I haven't a clue, Stephen.

Whenever I'm in the hills, I feel like the
stinkin' rat race is far below me. Oh well,
bad luck is always better than NO luck at
all! Have a nice weekend!! :))
