Welcome to the Hagerman Valley

   The Hagerman Valley was formed 15,000 years ago by the Bonneville flood which gouged out canyons, moved house-sized boulders and left enormous sand bars. The Valley's landscape is dotted with uncounted numbers of "rock melons" giving silent testimony to the colossal flood. The Valley is a land of water, with hot and cold springs, volcanic lava flows, deep box canyons, fossil beds, mine diggings and vast rock formations. It is the canyon of the mighty Pohogawa, River of the Sage Plain, as the Indians called the Snake River, with its rapids, whirlpools, waterfalls and associated wildlife. It is a land of melon farming, waterfowl, deer and trout. It is a land of hot summers and mild winters; a land that has served the indian, the emigrant, the settler, and the farmer and rancher for hundreds of years.

...A very warm welcome to our visitors!
