2013 Reliable Water Sources / Long Dry Sections

Postby maverick » Tue Jul 23, 2013 7:28 pm

Fellow Members,

Last year we had a "Reliable Water Sources 2012" thread, and with this year being even
worse it would be a very helpful resource to collect our info here to help folks getting
ready to embark on their trips or are planning a trip for August or September.
With the extremely dry conditions that we have experienced, which unfortunately
will continue to get worse as we approach the height of the in-season next month, it
would be great if members would chime in on running streams/creeks or extremely
long, dry sections. Not talking about every little creek but named creeks, ones that
cross or are near the trail that anyone going through that area would normally count on
as water source.

Thank You,

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
