Sign of Water

On a walk across the Mojave Desert, Mike Hay pauses to look at this old sign on a remnant of an historic trail between Emigrant Pass and Cottonwood Canyon, near Towne Pass in Death Valley National Park. A small metal panel below the main sign reads, “Destruction or injury of post State prison offense.” Since we had cached and carried all the water we would need for our entire 425-mile walk, this sign made quite an impression.
