I’ve been informed that Deputy Harrington (based in Skykomish) had to go through the effort of hiking all the way up to the hot springs this weekend to kick two drunk trespassers out of the pool and off the property. It is unknown whether charges will be pressed or whether this action, started by unknowns, will have an effect of development plans. I gave Mike a spare key to the gate to give the Deputy Harrington so that he can drive onto the property the next time instead of hiking in.

The pattern has started again. If I catch anyone on the hot springs property that does not belong there I will turn you around . . . no matter how far in you’ve already hiked. There are enough signs posting this property as Private and no trespassing. Stay out! Keep your dogs out . . . keep your partying attitude out . . . keep the booze out. You will be reported! Period!
