Thanks for your early support!
Down here in the canyon at Pah Tempe, the rest of the world can seem so far away. But your early support gives us confidence that the tools we have to tell Pah Tempe's story on the internet are opening up a whole new world of possibility for the hot springs' future.
We've got lots of outreach planned for this project starting when everyone is back on the internet after Labor Day weekend, but the initial push we're making beforehand is critical to that second phase of outreach, and we have you to thank.
Because of the long weekend, we've already been able to start making great progress on gathering footage and interviews for the documentary, and we're excited to preview that for you now, and all along the way as we proceed. To start off with, for our first update, a couple neat photos+captions:
This photo shows Ken embracing Ben Pikyavit, a National Parks Service Ranger at nearby Pipe Springs Natl. Monument, and one of the few native Paiute left in the area willing and able to talk about the historical importance of the hot springs, and how it fits into the cultural history of the area.
This second photo is one of Ken, performing his weekly draining and washing of Pah Tempe's main grotto pools. His dedication to the hot springs is incredible, and we're sure it's going to come through beautifully in the documentary, and inspire others to feel the same way.
Thanks again for the early support, and keep an eye for more updates this upcoming week that will be perfect for sharing around with other potential backers!
