Water Report in Boot Spring Please
« on: October 08, 2012, 08:11:28 PM »
Almost time to head to the BiBe. Would love a most recent WATER REPORT  in Boot Spring. Thank you very much to all my new BiBe friends!  :13:
I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in. - John Muir -

I'm heading out there in nine days myself. Interested in knowing the same thing. My feeling is that there should be plenty with the recent rains but it would sure be nice to have a first-hand report. :crossedfingers:

So give me a report when you get back, would you JSS? It would be appreciated.

As off a few days the upper pools had a good amount of water, just make you make it past the first green ones. Good quality and enough to harvest without impacting the local fauna.

Radar is looking promising.  Looks like more rain could be falling over the Chisos this evening!

brownmouse, my trip had to be delayed until Nov. My hiking partner has a minor medical issue and we decided it was best to wait until next month.  Sorry, I won't be able to have a water report for you.  Let us know how your trip goes.

Went to Boot Spr. three days ago.  Water from the pipe ca. 1.25 gpm, also lots of pools above the cabin in the drainage.  Fall color starting to show in the maples ....

Just returned from three days in the mountains. Still many pools standing, but the flow from the pipe is really more like a trickle. Took close to two minutes to fill a 500 ml bottle.

As mentioned, leaves are starting to turn colors and the views are wonderful.
