2/28 BBRSP Water Report
« on: March 02, 2014, 12:13:43 PM »
My buddy Harold and I completed a trek from W. Contrabando to E. Rancherias on 2/28. We found water as follows:

Fresno Creek - pools of water at two locations between Wax Factory and W. Contrabando TH. Best at 29.3229 -103.8489

Fresno Creek - good running water just below the Cascades - roughly 29.3674 -103.8495

Arroyo Primero - good running water east of Madrid House.

Trough Spring (Ojo Blanco?) - good running water.

Panther Spring - good running water.

Reza House Spring - good running water.

Seep Spring (29.3428 -103.9895) - water, but quite mossy and foul.

Campo Javelin Well -  good working order and plenty of water.

Sounds like a nice trip -- all in one day?

Got any pics?

All in one day? Hardly! I'm "still alive at sixty-five" but not up to a 30+ mile dayhike!
