Water at "Bluff Spring Mountain" spring?

Post by kanode » Nov 05 2007 1:06 pm

Anyone know if there is currently (or usually in the fall) water on top of Bluff Spring mountain at what some maps call: "Bluff Spring Mountain spring"?

I'm not asking about Bluff Spring near the intersection of the Lost Dutchman and Bluff Spring trails--rather the spring in the center of Hidden Valley on top of Bluff Spring Mountain.

Thanks,
Irv

I'm curious to hear about either one.

If there is water up there I'd be curious to know where it's coming from 300 feet higher than the lower spring in this drought :o

There wasn't any water on top of Bluff Spring Mountain in Hidden Valley. We intended to check out Bluff Spring for water on the way out but ran out of time. I may get a chance to check out Bluff Spring next weekend.

Is there evidence of a spring, workings/pipe/dried pool?
