Shoshone: Ice Caves

Legend has it that a Shoshone Indian princess named Edahow was buried in the Shoshone Ice Caves and if the cave melted she would rise and walk the caves again for eternal life. Over development and a poorly placed access tunnel melted the entire cave in the early 1940s. The Robinson Family acquired the land in the 1950s. Russell Robinson studied the caverns, charted the airflow through the passages, and restored the caves back to an icy state in 1962. When in the caves, you may see or see the young Indian princess wandering around the cave.
