was clean and very affordable, and the hot springs were
amazing. The staff was extremely friendly and nice, and the

Death Valley. -- Cheers!

Comments: A good friend has recommended Tecopa Hot Springs for years. After a Vegas visit (not my favorite place) I finally took his advice and drove the stunningly gorgeous Old Spanish Highway to the Resort. The soak was EXACTLY what I needed -- a beautiful and calming experience, helping me to connect to the ancient spirit forces so vibrant in this area. I will absolutely be back for an extended visit and look forward to staying for a few days. Thank you, Amy!

Comments: This is an absolutely uniquely beautiful area and the resort helped deliver that special feeling. We stayed at the resort in a Motorhome and camped at one of their full hook-up RV sites. The people are friendly and made us feel at home. It's a great experience to be in the desert, especially that we're from the SF/Bay Area. Be prepared to NOT have cell signal, texting ability or Internet, but then again, isn't that why you chose to get away from it all?

Used to go skinny-dipping down in China Ranch, when there wasn't anything there but a couple of small houses. Was a friend of Paul Crockett's, and at one time, worked in the Brown's store in Shoshone.

Comments: Tecopa Hot Springs Resort was a special place to stay. Although it was hot outside, it was nice to use the hot bath. The resort is close to an entrance of Death Valley, so it's a good place before or after your visit. It is special to enjoy the silence in the evening. If the restaurant is not open it is a pleasure to have dinner in Shoshone.

Comments: I remember being in Tecopa many times as a child, traveling from Seattle with my mother down Highway 99 (from about early 60s through about 1970). I don't remember ever staying at the Springs, although I do remember soaking in them, but we may have stayed as well. Usually, I remember waking up in a tent near town. I do remember hiking one of the hills nearby and pickup up chunks of clay with opal inside. I also remember the 1 room schoolhouse, and the combo gas station/grocery (and 1 stopsign?). We had friends who as I remember lived east of town who were relatives or friends of actor Stuart Whiman. I've often thought of Tecopa over the years, and hope to come through town again one day soon. Thank you.

I have been thinking about you and have been meaning to get in touch with you for eons!! Then today I picked up the Feb/March 2009 issue of The Sun Runner, and there was your picture on page 9! Holy Moly! You look great, and happy....and I can tell from looking at your website that you ARE happy. Paul and I are in the desert from early November to about now; we bought a little house in Wonder Valley, outside 29 Palms, several years ago. The rest of the year we are at our home in Northern Michigan, for which we are packing to return to as we speak. I retired from the Getty 5 years ago. We MUST come to visit you in Tecopa when we return in the fall! Please email me; I would love to hear from you.

I knew 'Harry (Buddy) Rosenberg' who signed on 7/14/04. Dream of returning someday, but I live on the east coast.

Comments: my first labyrinth experience....
... as i probably told u.. i am a logical science kinda guy with a
medium size spirtual undercurrent..... i kinda walk both sides of
the street when it comes to my consciousness and relationship
to the universe

i had a pretty powerful experience while visiting tecopa and i felt
the need to summarize and share it with u

i know little of labyrinths.... just that they are symbolic and
related to ones consciousness and relationship to ones universe

with that very limited understanding... i entered the labyrinth at
tecopa after a 500 mile journey visit the hot springs........

as i entered the labyrinth i felt immediately calm and more
centered and as i walked the path.. it became instantly apparent
to me that the path could be viewed as my life path and my
steps my actual life experiences.... memories of my life came to
me ...rapidly as i walked.... and it became apparent that my life
was the product of my path.. and that the path .. although
apparently convoluted .... was the most direct path in the
universe to my center.. my essential being.... as i walked.... i
became calmer... as though looking at my life.. and the
rightness of it all... the correctness of each step ..correct for
me..... joseph campbell style.... was very calming and reassuring

names of the people who had helped me become self aware
came to me... and seminal events on my path.... the rocks that
formed the path became the people and events.. providing clear
markers for me to walk calmly and slowly to my center

...as i walked .. i spoke the names of my life guides who helped
me see my personal path.... teacvhers.. parents.. my children..
my wife..... my lovers......my bosses.. my friends from childhood
and adulthood.... i also softly called out seminal events in my
life..... gettting lost in the shipwreck.. accidentally derailing the
train.....the birth of my children.......as i called them out they
were like little bursts of calmness .. little spiritual smiles


then i was there.... the center of the labyrinth and the center of
my being..... in the now.... in the moment.. yet the center was
connected directly to the entire universe...... to the entire
continium of time.......eternal bliss.... eternal life..... connectivity
with all things... all creatures.... me......the imagery of the
feminine force was powerful at this point.. ..earth mother
goddess kinda energy.... and i was in its presence.... spiritually
naked.... no need for words ..this was the point of my
recognizing my spiritual completeness.... the point in my life
where i became conscious of my center and my completness.....

then i started to walk the outward bound side from the center of
the labyrinth... this was for me the vision side.. i got to see the
vision of the rest of my life... how i wish to walk the path that is
my unique path from here till i exit the labyrinth and am
released back to the universe as disordered energy....

as i walked outward from the labyrinth center.... again i was
overcome with calmness... and an unfolding of that which i
somehow already new... the rocks that formed the path again
were the people and events that would sustain me in the rest of
my lifes journey.....they were affirmations of clarity of my lifes
path... this time the imagery was different.. not so event
specific.. more conceptual...... i could see that giving.. and
teaching and wandering the world were my path..... and that
giving and sharing was the energy i felt as the dominant force in
my life walk.

i was also struck by the cross in the labyrinth.... there is but
one... and as u walk the labyrinth .. u approach the cross from
each of its four quadrants..... as u walk your personal life
path..... i havent figured out what that observation means to
me.... but i was reminded of the stations of the cross in catholic
doctrine.... hmmmmmm

...... when i came to the exit/entrance.... i turned and walked it
again... repeating several times... each time.... the feelings and
thoughts were the same... i was walking my life..... the first half
was becoming.... then i faced myself in the center..... and walked
outward feeling whole and that the steps of my life were in
perfect order with my nature.........the people and events.. some
the same and some new each time.... came unbidden to my
consciousness as i walked.....it was telling to me that it was like
a record.. replaying the same story each time i walked ........

when i exited the last time.... i felt that it was not the departure
point of earthly existence.. i felt that it represented release back
to the universe as energy... transfiguration... if u will.....

after returning home i looked up labyrinths ...left brain science
guy that i am sometimes,,,and found that the symbology of the
labryinth is exactly as my mind had constructed it... a metaphor
for life... for birth and death....... for the spiritual nature of the
universe and of existence.....for the feminine energy of
life......for the birth process.. for the unfolding of lifes
mysteries.....

in short a very memorable journey.....

thank u again for providing such a magical place for middle
aged science guys to bumble around having epiphanies in the
dark..... oh btw it was a full moon and easter time... last time i
was at tecopa it was the solstice....

Comments: I was very pleased to find this site. My mother and I visited for the first time in 1988 or '89. She had fallen while running and badly hurt her knees. A co-worker told her about the springs, so on a whim we drove up from L.A. after locating this tiny speck on the map. Had a wonderful time car-camping...did the hot springs and the clay baths and much hiking. It became an annual event for us until 1994 when I convinced mom to join me back in our home state of Kansas. I'm now married (with children) and mom has gone Home to Heaven, but I still have fond memories of that place and hope to be able to bring my new family to visit soon!

desert and the beauty of the colorful earth, the quality of the

In the mornings his water and all the windows would be iced and we would go into the public spring house and sit in that fantastic warmth at 2:30AM and would then run back across the street to the RV and sleep soundly. During the day we would hike around the desert and I remember being told that in the distance looking out in the direction of the rv park about a mile along a roag where people would find opals! It is a very relaxing and quiet atmosphere! I need to get there again soon!

Out of the blue my wife and I visited the Tecopa Hot Springs back on October 15th 2004. Not knowing, we had no expectations! Now looking at pictures I come to realize what a magical moment and beautiful place this truly is! The serene prestige and tranquil beauty took me someplace I had never been before but will bring me back!

Marta Becket is really filling that place. You also should know that the Long Street Saloonand Inn on HWY 127 had a fire and is closed for rebuilding until May 1st. The casino and restaurant are still open. So maybe you should advertise at the Opera House that you have accommodation available for Sat and Sun nights, the nights of the performances. Good luck with your adventure, Suzanne, Amy, Donna and Terry.

Had never been there before (learned of Tecopa on the internet ! ) and hopefully will get an opportunity to return.

Comments: I've been visiting Tecopa for over 20 years - a nanosecond in geologic terms, I realize - and still am amazed by the awe-inspiring natural beauty of the Valley. Part of me sees myself living in the Amargosa Valley -- surely one's high self can be discovered in this region!! I just got back from Tecopa from a visit and went to China Ranch and tasted their AMAZING date shakes!!! I RECOMMEND EVERYONE VISITING THIS AREA STOP BY (and, no, I don't work nor am related to anyone at the Ranch!). After years of having indifference to visiting the Ranch, I am so glad I traveled with a friend who wanted to see the place. From the road leading to the Ranch through the developing personal knowledge of the region's history, this place is magical. I will be back to hike around the China Basin area...so full of history, including the T&T Railroad.

I've grown from being a wild child flying through jumping in the hot springs on the way to Vegas to a older, slower guy who is just starting to appreciate the eastern Death Valley region, specifically, the Amargoza Valley area. Now, when I visit the region, it is with a reverence and respect for the region that only grows with time. Come rejunvenate your souls at beautiful Tecopa. Let the still and crisp air settle your worries and bring a calm over you. And remember to "camp in, camp out" your "stuff"....this isn't a county park you're visiting; it's nature in her rawest form!!!

Comments: I am overjoyed to discover your website! I visited
Tecopa Hot Springs several times in the late 70's
and experienced such pleasure and serenity. Can't
imagine what's kept me away all these years. I am
now fortunate to own an RV and having just passed
the "half-century" mark with a mind set to spend as much of my time doing what I want Tecopa is
my very next destination. Thank you for your
vision and dream Amy. Hope I will meet you.

Comments: Tecopa is a sacred and serene place to heal and be healed. Mother Earths gifts are abundant in so many beautiful forms. The blessings I have experienced here are too numerous to list and reserve a special place in my mind. I highly recomended Tecopa's Springs to be experienced by all.

Namaste'

Comments: I want to tell you that I was in Tecopa for the first time in December 1990. I have been back through there two to three times since then. Tecopa is the place for me, remote and quiet. Truly it is a place to collect your thoughts and get back onto the right track. When I return to my Nevada home, I look forward to spending even more time in Tecopa. Tecopa is God's country.
