Amazing water levels for sure, especially that report of a flowing stream at the Smoky Creek and Dodson junction. Sounds like a March trip I did in '92 along the same route after several years of above average rainfall but a particularly wet Dec.-Feb. period and water was running down almost every wash. I will be a good time to hit the lower desert this year.
Hey Brad, this is lech (Ric). I was leaving as you were headed in. The water was amazing back in the Quemada's. After years I have finally joined the forum, Newbie to forum but not BiBe, In 70/80s rafted mainly. On occasion after doing all the established trails started my adventures into the Quemadas. Then 22 year sabbatical to raise kids and then started heading back into the Quemadas in 2013. For recent report on the Corral spring drainage and water go to youtube and just search "rtcentral12". Can't wait to see Brad's report and photos.

Where was the waterfall at 11:00? Got coordinates? Awesome sight!
That was my brother and me you bumped into near Jack's Pass. We did Mules Ears to Dominguez through Jack's Pass and then up Fisk to to Smokey Creek Trail and back. Water everywhere. Most I've seen in 40 years of BBNP trekking.If someone doesn't like carrying the water weight (like me) now is the time to go.
