Welcome to the forum. as you have seen from my previous posts, I have OCed around the springs a little and had no negative experienes or interactions. I am looking into the Garden of the Gods thing. My info regarding who owns it was indeed wrong. The sign stating that firearms are prohibited was real, asI saw it with my own eyes. My mom is going to go searching for the sign this weekend and take a picture. Since you are local, if the sign is still up, would you be interested in helping to ensure its removal by writting to a few people?
