Windmill Spring


I was doing some preliminary work for the installation of a solar pump in an abandoned well yesterday, after which I checked the water at Windmill Spring. No windmill anymore, it still carries the name and the only reliable water we have at the Paregien Ranch this year. It’s fed from a spring box and fills a series of troughs.


These girls had just watered before I arrived, having seen them earlier in the day about a mile away as I was putting out protein supplement tubs.


When I got to the spring, this girl was watering at the last trough, constructed of redwood well-before my time.



Water is scarce and everyone knows where it is. I could have taken wildlife photos all afternoon.
