If it is the location just below the Volcano pool that was the other group from Moab with the stout tent. They were there for over a month so had a lot of time on their hands.

someone or some people built a weird altar between the upper bathroom and the main road.  It has bunch of built up rocks, with metal scrap and some candles.  I didn't take a picture, but it was quite elaborate.

The rabbit is hopped up over this. I did actually see a rabbit last week while on a hike.

If the park approves a project they aren't the ones who actually put the work in from what I've seen. They did not resurface the Wizard Pool nor make changes to the valves. They do not blow out the tubes from source to tub with compressed air.

Rabbit why don't you apply to be the seasonal host at Palm Spring? Hop to it!

OK, thanks for the clarification, so now I understand that no one who doesn't work for the park has the right to add or remove "improvements"  period. I will no longer bother with suggestions to improve the camping experience at Saline, it is what it is, got it!

As for James messing with me, I no longer enjoy his madness

"A recent post about removing things from the camps if the individual didn't think they belonged has me curious as to who really has the right to remove anything from the grounds at Saline besides the Park Service and their employees?" - same goes for installing the covers. One needs to get approval from the camp host who may seek approval from the park.

BTW, James was probably messing with you referring to an old post about something else and to the park removing the new tables.

The Park Service has asked SPA to pass along a "request" that no improvement projects should be conducted at the springs without prior approval from the Park Service itself. Recently a member of our visitor community installed new picnic tables at the lower camp. This "improvement" is what has precipitated this request. Subsequent to their installation, members of the Park Service visited the springs and determined that the new tables should be removed because the old tables were deemed to be in good condition and matched standards better. The new tables were removed to Cow Creek, and SPA has contact their donor to inform him that arrangements can be made to return those tables through the Chief Ranger's office.
 
Toward complying with this Park request, SPA would suggest that future projects be cleared with the Park Service prior to their execution. This might be done in one of several ways. The Park Service can be contacted directly with a proposal (SPA is working on determining the best means of public contact with the park for this option ... stay tuned). Alternatively, proposals can be suggested to the Springs camp host and he may obtain Park approval. Lastly, if you wish to make the proposal through SPA, we will be happy to make the case for your proposal.
 
Presently, SPA will be making a case for the reconsideration of the Park decision with regard to the picnic tables donated to the lower camp, particularly since the old tables have been moved and may not offer the same level of visitor accessibility that has historically been available.
