    Power and Control

    by Assenczo Updated Sep 29, 2014

    When in Soda Springs Town, one has to go to the sight of the “biggest, largest, grandest” timed geyser in the world. It is not immediately known how many of those are in the global world, not just the North American one and who has compared them scientifically. One thing is for sure, the visitor is not to be disappointed especially if he/she happens to be a child. Moreover, unlike its untamed Yellowstone counterparts, this creature works like a Swiss clock every hour on the hour and the power of the water burst is astounding. Around it nice picnic area with benches and toilet facilities has been set up boosted by information stalls with anything that is important to know about Soda Springs and its turbulent history.

    Revisiting the Past

    by Assenczo Updated Sep 6, 2014

    If there is something to be revisited in Soda Springs it must be the cemetery. In a way, at first glance, there is nothing unusual about it with its white stones peacefully coexisting with manicured grass. On closer inspection and with the help of the tourist brochure one can find a piece of history underlining the existence of the whole “wild” West. A grave stone produced at a later date marks the spot where the first grave(s) institutionalised the location of the town’s burial ground. It is erected at the place where a family of “illegal aliens” from the point of view of the locals were interred. Their wagon convoy sped ahead while the family tried to recapture some live stock on the loose. In no time they were separated, lost and overpowered by the natives who must have had enough of similar trespassers to put up with. The parents and five children were buried hastily by some fellow travelers using certain parts of their wagon. The palpability of history as opposed to the boredom that it usually stems from it makes this spot a must-see in Soda Springs town and beyond.

    Caribou County Courthouse

    by WulfstanTraveller Written Nov 9, 2010

    As the county seat, Soda Springs is home to the old Caribou County Courthouse downtown. It is about one block north of US hwy 30, which runs east-west through the centre of town. Because it is one block north of the main highway through town, it is easy to visit if one is driving through.
