Bottled Water

I'm in Lake Arrowhead California. Of the Arrowhead water fame. Several years ago we were visiting a local park and I thought it funny that a nearby family had a big jug of Arrowhead Water. Would they be shunned if they had a jug of Safeway water? Does the company have exclusive rights to bottled water in the area?

I don't like Arrowhead Water. I prefer Kroger brand or Kirkland brand bottled water. Something about the spring water there.

Hmmmm, that reminds me of the BEST water I've ever had! On a unplanned detour near Le Grande, OR a good Samaratan took us to an Artesian well on Katherine Creek. I have NEVER had such amazing water. It poured constantly from a pipe and ran into the creek. It was cool and crisp. It was by far the best water I've ever had.

If you find yourself driving through Le Grande and are feeling parched, take the exit for Union and drive up Katherine Creek for a refreshing taste of pure water.


  1. Hmmm, have you ever been swimming in Lake Tahoe? Its like swimming in Evian water and I mean that in the best way. It is so nice to put your face in the water and when it drips on your lips it tastes like spring water. Much better than the Great Salt Lake. Where you get a completely different experience with water.

    Have fun on your vacation. Check your messages if you get near any WiFi.

  2. Whoops! I thought I already commented on this post. Apparently not.

    I LOVE Lake Tahoe. Sad that we haven't been yet this year.

    Can't wait for you to get back, DJ! We miss you!

  3. I'm not a fan of Arrowhead either. It has a metallic taste to me.

    That's funny that those who are visiting Arrowhead feel compelled to drink that label.

    Hope you're having a great time!
