Hehe - that's a very good point SH - water is the major key to survival out there.
That does make me think of something though, and I believe I mentioned it once on a forum (whether it was this one or not, I'm not sure). Although I carry a water purification apparatus and iodine pills with me when hiking out there, and if push came to shove, I would drink any water in order to survive, have you ever wondered what could contaminate some of those pools of water?
With the mining that's gone on out there since who knows when, and the fact that there ARE mercury deposts in the mountains, I've often wondered what the levels of cyanide and/or mercury could be in some of those pools of water.
