Since no one has passed through north yet, I haven't had the opportunity =
to get an updated water report. I do have my reports from last year at =
this same period of time, but in the section referenced water conditions =
change rapidly. Consequently, you'll need to continue checking reports =
for current conditions. We just had the first northbounders arrive =
yesterday, so they should be able to provide some current info within =
the next two weeks. As has been said again and again, do not count on =
Please note that the following water report was for LAST YEAR (2000). I =
will update with a current report as soon as hikers have passed through =
and validated the information. Water info for Wrightwood to Agua Dulce =
will be posted at the Big Bear Fire Station. Info will also be posted =
at the PCTA website.
