I lived in Arizona from 82 to 97.  The same thing happened there.  People in Colorado would probably say the same thing.  I guess we're lucky here in part because things grow fast.  A candy wrapper is covered in moss in a couple of years. In AZ and even CO, it has to disintegrate before you don't see it, assuming one of us doesn't pick it up.

I was going to hike to them one time, but then turned around and hiked Mt. Pugh instead.

Well I've been there and you didn't miss alot.  It's still worth going up that way to get to Lake Byrne, though.   Who knows, maybe the springs will bubble up again.

Many good points have been shared here.  Thanks ML for such a good topic.  Short of a permit Enchantment system I don't know what can be done to help a Robin like area out.  One thing I like to do is to pick up any garbage that I find wherever I go.  I found two dead balloons at Ice Berg lake last year.  Now I know that many people will *say* "Well of course well all do that" but if that was the case there wouldn't be any garbage for ME to pick up would there?

That includes diving down to lake bottoms wherever I can reach.

Everybody needs to practice that.  Not everyone does.

I would love to know what Borank considers the most *wild* lake and area he has ever been to in Washington state.  But of course I'll never ask him that.

Don't fret about Kennedy HS, they weren't all that hot anyway. I would never have gotten into the "Tub". To me the mud pit was bacteria heaven and gross. flush.gif  hurl.gif  Goldmeyer HS are much nicer than Kennedy ever was.

Kennedy HS really was more of a "warm" spring.  Most of the camping spots were kind of damp and mushy.  There were a couple on the way to the Lk. Byrne trail that were dry and nice - still in deep forest.  It was almost always crowded.

The trail to Kennedy was a superb snow shoe, one of my favorites.  The forest was very pretty.  With the river so close, there was always lots of wildlife to see.  And it was a great spot to set up a base camp and explore the truly superb country around Glacier Peak.

You can still get in there, BTW.  It's just a whole lot more inconvenient now.

The last time I was up Goldmeir way the soaking pools were full of naked teenagers, boyfriends and girlfriends I guess. I wondered if Daddy knew were his "Little Baby" really was!! What to do but go back. On the way out more "Boyfriends and Girlfriends" were on the way up the road. Looking forward to a good soak but all I found was naked young girls.  rolleyes.gif   bagger.gif
