Blue Point Bay II
This is one of a pair of photographs of the colorful shores of Blue Point Bay. As long as there have been human inhabitants in our area, the water bubbling to the surface at these springs attracted visitors. Ancient visitors were probably early First Nations hunter-gatherer tribes.
Later cultures built multi-storied villages and farmed along the Muddy River. Later still, a new culture rediscovered the springs in the 1800s. The spot became a favorite leisure-time destination for Mormon pioneers settling the nearby river valley. For the full story on this image visit the corresponding page on Where Eagles Fly
