Honoring the History of the Land | Maple Grove Hot Springs

For thousands of years, Mother Nature has sent up a cold weather signal from this very spot. The swans arrive, the turkeys gather, and the deer descend. ⁠

For hundreds of years, members of the now NW Band of Shoshone would also heed the signal and make this, and nearby geothermal pockets along the Bear River, a winter camp and home. ⁠

⁠For the last 60 years, an eclectic collection of farmers, families, and friends rounded this corner and maybe took a dip after a long day fishing. ⁠

⁠For the last decade, customers from mostly nearby towns would see this steam rise right before crashing for the night in an old vintage trailer. ⁠

⁠For the last 3 years, one by one, many of you have rounded this bend and seen, for the first time, the same steamy signal call you in. ⁠

⁠At one time or another, we have all come here to experience this same magic by following in the footsteps of those who were here long before. ⁠

⁠Sooner or later, we will all pass it on to those who will follow long after we leave. ⁠

⁠Here, and with all-natural land, the invitation is the same - ⁠

⁠Leave it better than you found it. Honor those who came before and prepare those who have yet to even come. ⁠

⁠Three years from now. 10 years from now. 60 years from now. A hundred years from now. A thousand years from now.
