Still there, sort of

The spring is still there but the whole area has been transformed. Now it's just out in the open, in a grassy spot beside the road. It no longer is nestled in a peaceful wooded enclave like the 1903 photo shows.

Oh, and the National Park Service has deemed it unsafe to allow spring water to flow anymore. I wonder if it was capped off or diverted somewhere else?
