There is a new bridge to the heated pools. Thanks to metalworker, Jim Melcher, architect and machinist who designed and installed the bridge with the help of Mike Blevins, his able volunteer. After Jim did the welding and positioning, the staff poured the concrete, in which pipes containing flowing hot springs water are embedded. This will keep the bridge free of ice and snow even on cold January nights. The flagstone is now complete and the temporary wooden bridge has been removed. There will eventually be more appropriate handrails using juniper and oak instead of the pvc conduit handrails in place presently.
