OML Water Report 3/8/18
« on: March 08, 2018, 08:14:35 PM »
Did not find water at Boot Spring, but I did not look too hard for the tinajas down-canyon, as I had plenty of water. There is water at Juniper Spring, still running pretty well into the soupbowl-sized depression. (See elsewhere on this site for directions). At Dodson Spring, there is water in the spring, somewhat goopy. Water crossing the trail intermittently at Fresno. Pump-able. Go down 30 yards or so and there’s a nice little pool you can dip your jug in, and use your Steripen if you have one. Larger pools further on down the canyon.
