I'm going to be doing the 9 peaks as a backpack, starting from South Fork, staying the first night at Dry Lake, then tanking up on water and camping the second night on San Gorgonio's summit. Since there is no snow on the summit (sadly) by the time I get to High Meadow Springs for my third night's camp, I'm expecting to be a bit thirsty.
The water source/conditions page no longer has anything useful on it about High Meadow Springs. I searched the forum and it appears that HMS always has water, even if it's slow. So that's nice, if true. Side question: I'm sure it was discussed here once but I missed it; could someone tell me what happened to all that old useful data that used to be on the page?
Anyway, my main question is for Hikin Jim:
Could you post the most exact location you can for where the spring is located? Using the trusty ACME mapper, of course, on satellite viewing mode, like this. Of course, an accurate gps-usable lat/lon coordinate would also be nice... Thanks in advance, Jim. I want to be able to walk right to the water without any trouble. Also, could you mark what your best guess is as to the campsite's location?
