Rogers Spring is one of many natural springs that emerge near Lake Mead. The link will tell you much more about the spring. The signs very directly tell you to NOT drink the water or let the water get into your nasal passages as there is an infectious organism in the water that enters the human body through the nose.
Scary stuff man! I recommend following the park’s advice. It’s amazing though to see so much water in one place in the middle of nowhere while it’s over 100 degrees which it was that day. The beautiful Mojave Desert never fails to amaze with its beauty and surprises! This post is part of my post Lake Mead Run.
Part two of Rogers Spring is coming up.
