Well this was a great trip.
I had a party of 7 with me on this.
I swear we saw 40 people hiking out as we were driving in.
I asked a few people about how the springs were doing and was told there was no water even at the holding tanks. That was a little disconcerting but I figured we could find a puddle or two to filter from if we had to. I planned to set up camp near the lower spring. When I headed up the side trail to the concrete tank, I found the first catcher completely full. The pipe was dripping about once per second and a hike up to the spring source showed it full and clear too.
With that out of the way, we picked some bright trees to set up camp under. After that, it was time to start wasting time in the beauty.
The next day we hiked at our own pace to the upper spring. I think it Noel and I a record 3-4hrs.
The peak color was great. The aspens at the end were about done, but we were able to find plenty other colors about.
Thanks to those who went before and contributed to my research on dates and the area!

Technically some moisture there. No water in holding tank. No easy way to catch seep drip.
