“Oh the buzzin' of the bees in the peppermints trees near the soda water fountain,
At the lemonade springs where the bluebird sings on the Big Rock Candy Mountains”
I remember the song by Burl Ives from when I was a kid, (DB claims never to have heard of it) well near Marysvale on highway 89 we found Big Rock Candy Mountain, although I believe the mountain wasn’t given the name until after the song was first recorded in 1928 by Harry McClintock.
Today there is a resort at the bottom of the hills and it’s on part of the Paiute ATV trail.
Although I looked very carefully I couldn’t find either the peppermint trees, soda water fountain or the lemonade springs, mind you the coffee from the resort was good and hot!
Have fun, we are!
