OML Water Report Needed
« on: October 29, 2017, 10:30:34 PM »
Does anyone have a recent water and spring report for any of the OML water sources?  It would be much appreciated.

There was good water reported the first week of October in the Chisos but I have not seen any reports on Upper Juniper or Fresno creek yet.  Mindy and watcher82 we both supposed to have done the OML in the last few weeks so hopefully they will report back in.  I would speculate that if Boot canyon had running water then Upper Juniper will and Fresno essentially always has water below the trail.

When are you going?
temperatures exceed 100 degrees F
minimum 1 gallon water per person/day
no shade, no water

I just got back and the Boot had lots of water; I did not see any in the Upper Juniper but I did not go looking for any; and Fresno creek had a good amount of water too.  I have pictures and can post if that will help.

Thanks for the info about Boot Canyon and Fresno.  Glad to hear there is water.  That helps my planning.  I'm going this Thursday.  I'll report back with what I find also. If you can post pics, that would be great.
