Life at Goldmyer Hot Springs

During the spring of 2012, I landed one of the best jobs of my life: Resident Caretaker of Goldmyer Hot Springs. On April 4, my best friend Lissa and I moved into a small, off-the-grid cabin located in the heart of the Middlefork of the Snoqualmie River Valley where we would remain for the next 6 1/2 months. The below stories are about my life living Goldmyer.

“Do not come and roam here unless you are willing to be enslaved by its charms. Its beauty and peace and harmony will entrance you. Once it has you in its power, it will never release you the rest of your days.” – Gordan Wallace
