More on Dugout Dick

The Idaho Statesman reports today that caves carved into the mountainside by Salmon's Dugout Dick will be closed temporarily as they're inventoried and assessed by the Bureau of Land Mangement, which owns the land the caves are built on.

The BLM tells the Statesman the public will be invitged at a later date to help decide what to do with the caves.

This is a good thing. I hope the caves are preserved as a cultural relic, and that people are allowed to rent them. I'm also pleased the BLM is stepping in as a steward, to ensure what Dugout Dick dug out isn't trashed or fought over. Good show.
