I am at Mountain Spring, just north of McDowell Peak near Windgate Pass in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve. This spring used to supply water to Brown's Ranch.

Today the water is flowing free and down the mountainside! I understand the city will be working with Arizona Game & Fish Department to plan on future uses for this natural spring. This natural spring is a win win situation for the city!!
