Title: OML water report
Post by: Wadfather on March 14, 2019, 10:58:49 AM
I just went clockwise through the outer Mountain Loop and just thought there should be some updated info on it.

Boot spring: light flow with some pools below as of March 10th

Juniper: dry

Smoky Creek: dry
 
Fresno Creek: following strongly as of March 11th

All else is dry so be sure to cache your water and have fun.

Welcome to BBC and thanks for the water report.

Did you walk up the hill behind the concrete troughs at Upper Juniper spring to check the actual spring?  I find it hard to believe that it is dry.

How were the spring break crowds?

Not as bad as I expected, especially considering the well-reported wildflower bloom.
