Does anyone have any recent (last couple weeks) information on whether the pipe at Boot Springs is currently flowing?  Thanks

Just back from a trip into the Chisos. On Jan 26th, the pipe at Boot Springs was dry.  Nice water in the pools up the canyon however.

On 2/3 the pipe was not flowing. It rained in the park the night before so there were still some small pools in boot canyon.
