A New Well


The crew had been drilling and working on this for a few months now and finally finished.  Once they left I went to investigate.  Its just down the dirt road a half mile or so from Camp Quarantine.  


If this well is to supply water for the water fill station at the other camp ground, that is 2.2 miles away as the crow flies.  Maybe they plan to have a second water fill point on this side of the highway here at Tyson Wash camp.  When we return next year I might have an answer.


Tyson Wash is a major water course in the area although it is always dry.  But the water table must be shallow and therefore why they chose this spot to drill.  The photo isn't the wash; just where they let the water run off when they struck gold.
