Bone Springs - Anybody Been There?
« on: May 19, 2018, 02:19:38 PM »
I did a quick search on Bone Spring, located below Persimmon Gap in the northeast of the park in the Rosillos Unit, 29.6173, -103.1755 on Caltopo, and I've found almost nothing about it on BBC.  A fair bit from folks crossing or hiking Bone Spring Draw east and south of the spring, but nothing about the spring itself. Has anyone here actually been to the spring? Is it ever wet, or a reliable source of water?

I feel like I've seen photos of the ruins there and am thinking it may serve as temporary housing for migrant traffic  :eusa_think:

Yikes! Thanks, Buck. Maybe that means there is at least a little reliable water there.
