In wet years there is natural water, and the elk, deer, antelope and many others have come to depend on Spirit Mountain as a safe place to have their babies. In dry years there is no natural water, so I haul water to tanks where they can drink. It is expensive to haul water up a mountain. The road needs to be good enough for a four wheel drive truck to haul 500 or 1000 gallons at a time. The rewards are great. Each and every year, elk, deer and antelope come to have their babies. When there is water they have a quiet and safe place to do so, away from human interaction, domestic livestock and predators. Eventually, I would like to build artificial springs, by building snowfences which will catch much more snow to make more "natural" water.
