For those who honestly don't know the history of DVNP it is easily found on the interwebs. The wonderful worlds of Diane Feinstein and Bill Clinton aligned in a way to grow the DVNM into DVNP. And for those of you who hate the free air shows in and around DVNP you can look to the same legislation for creating the training areas which are above the park.

The parks are open and huge groups are visiting. Open the pools already. Enough of the banter that somehow the pools are going to cause a huge spike in numbers of covid. If the viewing areas in national parks allowed to be filled with mouth breathing bipeds then the pools should be open as well.

I like the masks cuz I'm sick of looking at y'all. Besides Trump was right, I'm tired of winning. "we're #1!"

StarryEyedWonder has volunteered to recreate The Crystal Pool in his backyard, and has invited all SV folks over for a soak!

The pool should be finished by Labor Day weekend - perfect timing.

I don't know where he lives, but who cares? If we can get to Saline, we can get to his home...

Interesting, well stated comment.
It does make one wonder what’s really going on.

Yeah, because Covid-19 is so deadly we have to be tested to know if we have it or not.

99.7% survival rate, but we can't go outside without a mask. [rolleyes]

Hahahaha. The "president" is in the middle of a meltdown. If he has any "spare time " when he's not on the golf course, he should probably focus on a national strategy to address COVID-19.

Petition our president to return jurisdiction to the BLM.  Love him or hate him, he relishes in disrupting the status quo. What was the reasoning the Clinton Administration changed jurisdiction over to the National Park Service?

As far as what DVNP is trying to do. We all know. They are trying to get the pools closed permanently and return the site to it's natural state by tearing out the entire facility down to the grass. That was made perfectly clear at the meeting last November (?). If they didn't have to scrape every dime together for Scotty's Castle they would have brought the full power of the Parks down on the Springs before now. The clock is ticking. And as soon as Scotty's is finished (may it take a 100 years) they will attack the Springs.
Lobby for the Springs? Yes! We should all be doing that. Thankfully the Committee is working towards that end. But make no mistake, DVNP has no intentions of letting the Springs stay if they have anything to say about it.

Just because a person disagrees with the authorities on when to open the pools does not make that person right and the authority wrong.  Dialog, not calling out, attacking, or shaming, is what we should strive for in all of life.  We are supposed to be a society protected by the rule of law, and if you do not like the law, then lobby to change or amend it, but follow the law as it stands until it changes, or we have nothing but chaos, and have destroyed the very thing we cherish the most.  The pools will be there when this blows over.  Getting hot and bothered because one cannot "have things their way" is a waste at best.  DVNP is trying to find a balance, minimize their liability, be cautious, perhaps overly or unreasonably so, but hang in there - it will get better.  Logic has little to do with it...

What's the matter Bob? Has it been a while since you were able to leer at young ladies at the pool to the point that they became uncomfortable and left?

thanks speakeasy, one of my treasured items is Ronald Regan's signature on my CSUN degree
so sad he lost it before implementing his solution for too much taxes by having less government.
so, exercise your vote for LESS government and let the people rule !!!
defund NPS instead of the police, restore state's rights and local control of health and safety under the constitution
if the county says it is safe, then override the feds and restore the tubs
