It's Pretty Springy Down Here
This is one of countless springs that empty into the Suwannee River. Some are huge, named, and popular spots for recreation. Others are tucked away in out of the way places that only locals frequent. Many small springs are normally under the river's surface and all but invisible during normal or high water situations.
This little gusher was exposed by low river levels a few years ago. We canoed over to it and eased carefully down into the 72 degree water flowing from the limerock. It was extremely refreshing until your lips began to turn blue.
