Continental Divide Trail Map

Day 3 Retry

Up and away traveling cross country. I miss the China tank but hit the "metal object" spot on. (These are Ley map references...) Make it to the next windmill and 'rattling cabin' where there is abundant water generated from the wind turned wind mill. Several pictures of the cabin and speculate the stories it could tell. Then...wrong turn by walking left too early onto a private ranch road vs. the CR-B02 and this error costs time, energy and self confidence. Correction made with premiums paid and follow the road. Arrive at point 4 on Columbus 04 at 1630. The well is at the northeast end of the abandoned ranch. While tempted to poke around my focus was water. Yes, the solar pump worked fine; however, I managed to get water only because the pcv pipe leaked. Filled up and gratefully hydrated. Trail was a road walk until evening. Camped next to road. Terrain features on map helped to id site. Found I could not keep my lunch and snacks down: this may be a symptom of heat exhaustion altho other indicators were not present.
