Great shots Lance!  A bit concerned by the report that Mule Ears spring was flowing "slightly".
temperatures exceed 100 degrees F
minimum 1 gallon water per person/day
no shade, no water

Not well versed in how to gauge the flow of the springs, I'd say it was 1/2 gpm for both Trap and Mule Ears springs on 11/12/15.
Plenty of water to filter from.  Here are the only pictures I took of both springs.

Interestingly it looks like a good flow for Trap but not for Mule Ears.  Thank you for the clarification.

Lance,

Some great shots on this thread.

Very nice VivaTerligua!
Having decent gear is nice, but wildlife photography is knowing your subject and getting lucky, and I love getting lucky.
