Were taking some Boy Scouts the end of July hiking to Boot Canyon, has anyone seen any water up there?

No - but I covet a report from you upon your return.
Leave "quit" at the car.  Embrace the trail as your friend.  Expect to enjoy yourself, and to be amazed.

We have, a couple of years ago.  The pipe was running then.

We cancelled our Boy Scout hike for the end of July and rescheduled it for the end of August for lack of water.  Im glad we did, cant wait till Labor Day weekend to enjoy the colors after this great weekend of rain. I can only imagine what the plant and wildlife will be, not to mention water.  Standby for a full report on our return. 

Please let me know how the water is if someone beats us up there.
