Description:

Skull Springs is a small oasis along the Crowley Road adjacent to Skull Creek.  Little remains of the Harry Littlefield Ranch except for the small family cemetery consisting of 5 graves.  Historically, a postoffice once existed here in the 1910s and 1920s, supplied by the postoffice in Harper, 30 miles to the North.  The area is also known for thunder egg rocks.

 The road was not too muddy here even though it had been raining most of the day

 Started to rain.  Headed for Fields.  Serous mud.
