is east of Crescent Junction and near I-70 at Sego junction. E. W. Thompson
lived near the springs and operated a sawmill to the north near the
Book Cliffs. It was also a prominent shipping point for cattle that
were run in the Book Cliffs area. Stockmen from both San Juan and Grand counties used Thompson. The original name for this settlement was Thompson
Springs, a name that has recently been revived and reinstated.
