Boot Spring/Canyon Report 7.19-7.21
« on: July 22, 2019, 02:19:14 PM »
Just got back from a great trip up to the South Rim with a few other excursions in the Bend:

Boot Spring - flowing fast approx 2L/minute

Boot Canyon - lots of pools, only a few algae heavy, most clear, flowing between them slowly

Rain on 7.19 night fairly heavy. Plenty of water up in the High Chisos!
(I don't know how to add pictures I took of said water)
