Good News for the Springs!

The Scenic permitting process has been going on for four years now and finally we have received an official determination that resolves one of two major hurtles in the way of re-opening Scenic to the public. While I cannot be specific as the which hurtle we have cleared I felt it appropriate that those who have been patiently waiting at least know we are making progress.

And . . . I'd also like to personally thank Chuck at Goldmyer HS for attending the last meeting and providing perhaps a little bit of impetus (and the bearing of a knowledgeable lawyer) to get past the quibbling over 'artificial' versus 'natural' and make a determination.

Now we switch gears and approach an entirely different state agency for the other half of the equation. Scenic is becoming a reality!


  1. Awesome news. Keep up the good work.

  2. Good news indeed. It will be nice to see this gem open and being used wisely. I recall hiking to the springs in the early 70's when it was still wild. Always wondered what it would look like if it was intelligently developed. And now, 35+ years later I may finally see that.
