Thanks for sharing your trip.  I love S.V. and really soak (no pun intended) up any TRs related to it.  I've definitely noticed a uptick of visitors at the springs since I first started going there.  I've heard that Instagram is the reason.

Yeah...social media is not your friend.

Thanks for your comment, since you've posted quite a bit about SV. I feel social media and very specific posts that use key searchable phrases (h-- spr-ng) are spreading the word. I don't use instagram, and won't post on FB with details. I try very hard not to be specific, and will never post a photo of the developed springs for that reason. You'll notice all my photos are of the surrounding area, but not the improvements. I am very conscious of saying too much, and would consider even withdrawing our blogs if feedback from this group tells me this is too much. I've long felt too much is said and photographed already.

I had the same issue and the same solution. The URL is formed incorrectly for these last two links.
Try these:
Part IV https://lighthawkpho...alley-part-iii/
Part V: https://lighthawkpho...k-hills-part-v/
Good posts & timely for us as we plan to go there at end of Feb assuming it isn’t closed then.
