Mike, the owner, and George from Skykomish went up the next day to continue work.
This coming from Mike . . .
"Apparently, they (the father and son) became trapped inside the Scenic
Hot Springs overnight. They had no camping equipment, so they had to stay in the hot spring pool all night to keep themselves warm. When George and I visited on Sunday morning, we discovered them completely exhausted and had to drive them all the way back to their car."
"It was one of the dumbest and (most) dangerous things I have ever seen at a Hot Spring."
Those two were fortunate that Mike had business up at the Springs. What if no one came up? Would they have been missed? Would they have tried a hike down the following day . . . already exhausted, cold and wet?
