Soakages are found in the desert. Soaks actually soak up water, when it rains. Water fills up at the soaks and we drink from them. Today we don’t use the soaks like we did in the old days, but they are still there with water and a reminder to us all about our water was stored in the desert. These soaks are still part of our heritage.
