The Big Siphon

Star Valley is a lovely stretch of landscape on Wyoming’s western border north of Salt Lake City, Utah along Highway 89. The town of Afton is smack-dab in the middle of the valley and the downtown main drag is notable for a massive arch of elk antlers stretching over the street.

A short drive east of town in Bridger-Teton National Forest yields one of the rarest water phenomena in the world. Intermittent Spring is active by late August and continues well into the winter. Visitors have to do a little work to make it in but the dirt road is good and the sights along the way laudable:

We spent a little time in Star Valley this summer and found the local newspaper publisher, Dan Dockstader, to be a wealth of information concerning outdoor pursuits in the area. You can reach him by phone at: 307.885.5727 or go to the paper’s website:

If you have been, please share your experience.
