Thanks for sharing the photos! Only 20 days to go before we check into Boulder Ridge.

Interesting photos, thanks for posting them. I liked the serpentine walkway in front of the cabins. In the same photos there is a building in the pool area, has anyone confirmed what its purpose will be? We used to think it would be a snack bar, but that doesn't make sense with Geyser Point B&G nearby. And the bathrooms are on the south side of the pool.

Thanks for sharing the photos.

They make me look forward to eventually staying at both BRV and CCV.

I wish the new renovated pool had a slide added to make it another feature pool (like at the Paddock at SSR) . That would have easily added this as a place to stay regularly, the existing pool slide at the feature pool isn't very much of a slide.
