I camped there once in about 1970 in the early spring with snow on the ground. It was amazing laying in that pool with my head resting on the snowbank and seeing the Milky Way about as bright as you ever see it in the conterminous USA. Woke up in the early morning with a herd of antelope standing about 10 meters from my sleeping bag.

I camped there once again about 20 years later (on an R100GS) and was disappointed to see that they'd paved the big springs and put up walls.

BTW -- you misspelled "Hosers", it doesn't start with an "L"...
