Central Overland Trail – Willow Springs [Callao]

“At sunup came to Willow Springs and camped. This is quite an extensive valley. These springs are deep holes like wells and some so deep there can be no bottom found. Some run over, others stand level full. Every year some stock is lost here by drowning in these wells.”

George Harter, August 1864
