Comments: Hiked out in the morning and unexpectedly found a fresh water oasis with thick lush vegitation in the afternoon. We camped near here and hiked back to have dinner next to the trickling waterfall. Watched a beautiful sunset over Muel Ears peak. We saw at least 30 people within first .25 mile, but after that they thinned out to one or two around dusk. Fantastic hike.
