Query: G.N.I.S.

See also: Everet Well.

Well north of Lobo Point.

" road goes past some mine-camp buildings and then turns westward. About 2.3 miles from the road fork, at a point where the road bends southward is Granite Well. There is an old well about 200 feet west of the road and in sight of it, but a well that contains better water is about 300 feet farther west, in a wash that is hidden from the road water from this well is suitable for domestic use and for irrigation. Everet Well is reported to be half a mile southwest of Granite Well and to be reached by the road that runs past Granite Well. The water in these wells probably occurs in pockets of sand in the granite, and the quantity available is probably not very large (Thompson, 1929, p. 687)"


Elevation: 5134ft.
