Participate in a Clean Up and Get to Soak at Scenic

When: October 27th, 2007 at 9-10am

Where: FS850 (Scenic Access Road) at gate (confirmed volunteers will get detailed directions)

What: Erosion control; trash cleanup, etc

The snow's not far behind us and this is our last chance to join with Mike to clean-up the springs area in preparation for the winter season. We need to do a substantial bit of winter erosion control and cleanup.

Dress for the weather and be prepared to get dirty. It's hard to predict where the snow will be so dress in layers; have good, sturdy boots; and work gloves. We have need of shovels and picks for some of the work.

We will try to meet at the gate and drive further in . . . but those plans are dependent on weather. It's important that those who can (or plan to) participate RSVP so we can keep you updated on where to meet up. RSVPs can be made to me at bang

The work party will be clothed but the soak afterward will be an enjoyable soak au' natural in the hot springs Monster Tub with pure natural hot springs water at 110 degs F while we enjoy perhaps some snow flakes drifting down on the valleys and mountainsides around us. Plus, those who participate in more than one cleanup get credit and consideration for permission to visit again (legally) . . . while we are in the 'realization' stages of bringing Scenic Hot Springs back to the public.

Scenic Hot Springs has been nude-friendly and we'd like to convince the owner to keep it that way. The property is located on 40 private mountainside acres near Stevens Pass with superlative views. The owner of the property is devoted to bringing back the hot springs in as natural a state as possible for the enjoyment of the public and he deserves our help in keeping the property clean and pristine while he goes through the bureaucratic red-tape of allowing the rebuilding of natural rock pools and nature hiking trails. Here is our chance to prove that nudists and naturists are advocates and supporters of a rekindled Scenic Hot Springs. Here is an opportunity to keep and expand on the nude-friendliness of the property.

Important Note: Scenic Hot Springs is Private Property and the owner is expected to control access while he is in the permitting stages. Please do not take this posting as notice that Scenic is open to the public yet. Those who are helping get to enjoy . . . those who are not will just have to wait. Please do not trespass without permission.
