Jobe, I know how much you do and have done for the springs. I can't claim to do 1/10th as much, but I not only clean the springs myself each time I go, I have organized at this point a bunch of group cleans of the springs or have been part of organizing them, and have tried to be a link to some younger generations of springers who are coming up and caring for the place. That is all good that there are volunteers for the place.
And many, surely many here, have been hoping for a better access point and less drama around parking on the desert trail side for a long time. Many have had their problems with Bowen Ranch. But there seems to be new dangers here - capitalizing on the springs, and depending on regular springers to clean and care, while you impact the springs to make money - that is the problem. That website is bad news, in my opinion. We will see. It would make more sense, if these new owners are going to set up a website and more camping and more advertising of their access route to the springs, that they also involve themselves in the care of the place that their capitalizing will impact.

Unfortunately, the only story I've heard of the new owner is that he showed up at the springs, drinking tequila out of glass bottles in the pools, his friends left trash, and he got so inebriated he fell down some hill and had to be search and rescued out of the place. I've heard that story from a couple of different sources, people who were there that day, and others.
