"Terrain association is your best bet for finding water. If you don’t have a map, head downhill, look for increasing vegetation density, or follow animal signs like game trails. You can often find ice and snow for melting on the north aspect of a slope long after the surrounding area melts out..."Erik Kulick Founder, True North Wilderness Survival School
