7-Day Forecast for Scenic Hot Springs Area (2,900 ft near beginning of Trail Head)

Thursday, July 05, 2012

Lobster Pot is now hotter than Bear Den

Lobster:          108F in the pool
                        111F at the inlet

Bear Den:         106F in the pool
                           109.5 at the inlet
(temperatures as of July 6)

 . . . so Lobster is almost completely recovered from the annual snowmelt and we can increase the daily maximum users to normal.

The feed to Bear Den has also been repaired and back to normal.

    Wow, you guys continue to amaze the rest of us with your continuous, successful effort to protect and maintain this resource. How discouraging it must be to encounter one numbskull act of destruction after another. Know that your tenacity is appreciated beyond words.

  2. It's words like yours that really do keep us going. Both Matt and myself love Scenic and have been involved for years with the owner and his vision of opening the springs back up to the general public. But when someone says, "Thank you. I had a great soak," we feel that dealing with idiots is a minor sidetracking to the pleasure hundreds have had by visiting Scenic and discovering the joys of soaking in a natural hot spring in such beautiful surroundings.

    Again, thank for your words of encouragement.
