Goldbug Hot Springs Temporary Closure: June 25th – June 28th, 2008

Greetings Hot Springers, Soak Seekers, Geothermal Gurus... one of the sweetest soaks around is getting some improvements.

Goldbug Hot Springs in Idaho and the corresponding trail will be closed while undergoing improvements from June 25th through June 28th, 2008. Work will include blasting (dynamite) and trail re-route construction.

The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and U.S. Forest Service (USFS) respectfully ask that the public not visit Goldbug Hot Springs during this time, and to please keep away from any and all portions of the trail. This is merely a safety issue.

For additional information, please contact: Rob Jaggers, Outdoor Recreation Planner, Bureau of Land Management. (208)756-5466 and/or Send Email.

Any further updates and/or information related to this temporary closure and continuing work at Goldbug will be posted on this blog and the IdahoHotSprings.com listing for Goldbug Hot Springs as part of a joint effort with the BLM to keep the public informed about hot springs related projects.

Quick Clip of Sharkey Hot Springs

6.18.2008


Sharkey is operated by the BLM - which do an excellent job taking care of the pools and surrounding area. They are the ones that clean up after the trash mongers, and care very much about the well-being of this hot spring. In addition to the two stellar soaking pools, there are changing rooms, toilets, bbq pits and a large fire pit on-site. Please remember to not bring glass, pay your $1 to soak and pick up every bit of trash you see. Sharkey is a rare treat, let's keep it that way.

It's the time of year when it is often commonplace to stare up into the night sky from campsites, mountain retreats, deserts and even hot springs.

For those of us interested in what lies above, Microsoft has released World Wide Telescope for free. My initial feeling was that is it a definite rival for Google's Sky application, which is now also a part of Google Earth.

According to Microsoft:
"The WorldWide Telescope (WWT) is a Web 2.0 visualization software environment that enables your computer to function as a virtual telescope."
