Though Scenic is private the springs rely on its’ friends and volunteers
to help keep the property clean and maintained for the enjoyment of
lovers of hot springs.  The stewards now invite you to join us for one
last clean up event before winter snows set in.

  • We will review and clear any culverts that in our opinion might
    lead to blowouts and damage to the BPA road surface and Scenic trail
    during the eventual spring melt.
  • Our hot summer and recent mountain rains have encouraged an
    explosion of vegetation growth both on the BPA road and alongside the
    trail on up to the springs.
This event will start on Saturday, October 17th around 11am and run
through till the afternoon of Sunday, October 18th, 2015.  One party of
two is already allowed but we will take no more requests on this
weekend.  We do ask that if you plan to participate that you RSVP ahead
of time as this affects our planning (including food to have on hand). 
Unannounced visitors will probably be turned away as we do not know
their intentions (freeloaders or trespassers caught or honest . . . talk
to us).
Overnight soaking and camping as always for participants (let us know
one day or both days).  Winter is setting in . . . mid October is when
we see our first dusting of snow so come dressed appropriately in layers
and always think . . . wet weather (have an emergency poncho in you
pocket).  But lets pray for nice weather.

We need:

  • Shovels, azes, picks to work the cuts and culverts
  • Weed whackers, loppers, etc to clear vegetation
Lastly, why don’t you bring something to share . . . veggie trays, fruits, cheese . . . get creative.

This event will be hosted by Matt and I will attempt to be there at my beloved hot springs.  More to come later.      Rick
