Old Jack Elder discovered the mountain spring when he was a young man. He wanted to keep it from being plugged by nature’s debris. What better way than to build a shelter. He put up a sign to invite thirsty hikers to his cooling water. His invitation was accepted by lovers, lookers, and loggers who responded with contented “aha’s” and satisfying sighs. However, the spring has not been used for many years. Now-a-days walkers carry purified water in plastic bottles, casting them aside when they are empty. “Strange behavior for environmental enthusiasts,” old Jack mused as new generations led protests.
