Is water cleaner in the mountains?

    Bacteria and pathogenic viruses found in freshwater are less likely to survive in the open, exposed environment of a mountain landscape, so water from mountains tends to be safer for drinking.

    Unfortunately, the bacteria E Coli has, over the years, and as bacteria is wont to do, adapted itself to a variety of environments, including natural ones.  To avoid running the risk of ingesting the contaminant on a sunny-day hike, invest in a portable or hand-held water purifier.  This way, you get to enjoy that gulped-from-the-spring mountain freshness without the worry.
