Confirmed info that there's water in Oak Creek, probably in this spring/tinaja, which is in between Oak/Rough Run intersection, and Oak/Slickrock-access intersection:

My bro and I put out a water cache near some springs (the name escapes) in Rough Run ca. the Slickrock and Oak Creek drainages...I was exhilarated to know I had hauled water to the place, where we could have just about floated a canoe.


edit -- the pics are from 2007 -- definitely enough to float a canoe, so probably less than this right now...

I've been in that spot, and have similar pictures since we went after a 2" rain.  Very cool!

I know that spot well.  Have seen if full and seen it dry.  Good to see that water.  Probably some water in the springs/seeps north of the confluence.  :great:
