Title: Water report OML Feb 3-8, 2019
Post by: Timbaze on February 09, 2019, 10:52:01 PM
Just finished an enjoyable four-day OML hike. Side trips to Emory and elephant tusk. Deep pools in boot spring. Juniper spring dry. Fresno creek was flowing pretty well (Nalgene bottle deep), and a trickle in Smokey creek. Have fun!

Thanks for the update, Timbaze. Glad you had a great trip, and congrats!  Can you elaborate on Juniper Spring? Was that Upper Juniper?  If so, did you find the rock collection basin? And was there no flow at all, or just not enough to take advantage of?  Thanks!

+1, did you go up the hill from the old cement troughs to where Upper Juniper spring is?

Thanks for the report and welcome to BBC!
