Favorite Water Tank (you know you have one)

My favorite water tank is located high up on fire road 2N15, and is called "PIDGEON".



Noted for the archaic spelling of "pigeon," this tank coincidentally sits very near to a ridge called Pigeon.



Of course, some hikers have hypothesized that the unusual spelling might not refer to pigeons at all, but instead to the language of native Hawaiians, who occasionally deliver religious sermons from atop this water tank in the middle of summer.

Is this it?

I'm partial to the one just below Muir Peak. Means I'm almost there.

Yep. It's at the end of that long fire road.

Ah, yes, good old EW15. Great panoramic views from that one.

Laurel Spring off the Harding Truck Trail in the Santa Anas. It's not much, but I like it.

I like lounging atop the water tank at Josephine Saddle while admiring Strawberry Peak. I like the tank (and the views) at Gold Creek Saddle too.
