Any photos?It is in the canyon about 30' below the cabin. Follow the path on the south side of the cabin.
I know full well that desert springs are intermittent in their flow. That's all the more reason for accurate information like GPS coordinates, wouldn't you say? That's my gripe and someone out there knows.I'm all for self-reliance. I pack solo. I'll be hiking UP Juniper Canyon from Twisted Shoe. I will have plenty of water at my truck and can always get back there or to the Basin before I die but my 3 days and 2 nights on the trail will be a bomb If I don't have Boot Spring to drink from, that's all. Boot Spring is the only water source in the Chisos that I've seen the National Park will give any credence to.
That's all I was looking for.Thanks
