Did you happen to see the rock imagery in the rock alcove above that tinaja?

If by rock imagery you mean a rock in the shape of Abe Lincoln, then yes.

I roamed and rambled, and I foller'ed my footsteps
   To the sparkling sands of her diamond deserts
   And all around me a voice was a'sounding
   This land was made for you and me

JRad, I just walked out yesterday from a 6 day hike that included much of the area you're discussing. To add to what Ranger Tim said, there is most definitely a large, full tinaja in Arroyo Mexicano just above the Mexicano Falls Trail. Ojo Chilichote also had a lot of water. I will be starting a trip report most likely in a few days, but in the mean time I will PM you with some other thoughts.

There was a bit of water on that big eastern bend in the canyon about a mile below the Cascades when I was there on the 5th.  Not shocked C-S is dry now, it was a trickle when I was there. It took forever for me to filter 2 liters.
