Wonderful Mary at Bird Springs Pass, mile 630.8. I woke up to the sound of her truck. I was ecstatic to get to meet her since she’d saved my ass two days in a row with her water caches. I hauled 72 gallons of water from her truck in my pajamas. Since her son doesn’t want her doing water trail angeling and her truck and well are faltering, 2013 will be her last year after “many” years saving lives in the Mojave.
She turns 78 this week – happy birthday, Mary!
