Thereís a spring along the road into Pit 5 that comes straight off Mt. Lassen, and a guy I used to run into on the Pit always filled a couple jugs from it to make ice for his bourbon. I always liked his style.

Finding a way to take the color scheme of a Spawning Purple AND add peacock herl? Thatís some serious style Cameron. Very nice!
