After Simpson Springs is the River Bed Pony Express Station, which lies on the floor of the ancient Sevier River that drained from the area of Garfield County into Lake Bonneville. The river route was changed after a lava flow altered the river’s course into the Delta and Sevier Lake area. Because of flash flooding in the area, little evidence of the station remains. According to Pony Express folklore, this site was difficult to man because of its reputation of being regularly visited by desert spirits.
Location: Approximately eight miles west of the Simpson Springs Pony Express Station.
