Just back from a bike ride to Guffy.  There is a basin beneath the pipe and it was full today.  However, the pipe output is about 1 drop per 5 seconds.  2 gallon jugs of water marked "PCT" cached.

I didn't need water, but was just hoping to see the cheery spring.  There is a PCT water cache up by the tank in the campground.

I hate seeing how dry things are.

Hey, was the road open to Guffy?  Do you know if the road is open to Lupine Campground (past Guffy).

I came in on the PCT, so I didn't see the gate.   But as you've seen, indications are that it's closed past the entrance to Guffy.  The sign at Inspiration Point was marked as such when I passed by on Sunday.  Cars parked at Guffy indicated it is indeed open that far and (more or less) suitable for passenger cars to that point.

Oddly enough, it seems for a while now (past several years?) that fork of the road has only been open during hunting season.

EDIT:  Originally I said 'past Guffy' but that's incorrect.  The Blue Ridge Road was open to it's end (Wright Mtn) this spring.

Been remiss at posting this, but here's the sad state of the Guffy spring as of May 29:

The PCT water report suggests that general state persists.  

Sorry to see that one decline.    Sad
