View Full Version : Water In Region H

I'm doing a 6 day Backpacking trip and was trying to pin down a few good springs for drinking water. What is the most accurate way of finding out this information without actually being there? I talked to the Forest Service but never recieved any staight answers. They told me there was an abundunce of water everywhere and all the streams are flowing full. I even told them the exact location i was going. Any other ideas would be helpful, Thanks.

Sounds like it could be a pretty straight answer to me. Are there a lot of streams on your maps? Perhaps they meant you won't have to look far.

USGS Quads usually have good spring location information on them as well. Sounds like a fun trip!

I dont know, sounds like they gave you good info if you ask me. You could tell us all where you plan on going and we'd prolly tell you the same thing.
