[Memo]
You swim down into the mouth of the spring. At about 60ft there's a sign wanring you not to continue unless you are cave certified. I little beyond that, it gets dark quick. You're not allowed to bring a flashlight unless you show them your cave certification. I got as far as 68ft. I could still see the sruface clear as day.

Bob and I seemed to communicat well. Both got bored at about the same time. We'll have to do it again in a couple more weeks...

Clear, clean water. Not much to look at, rock wall, a little sand, a fallen tree with moss on it. We got bored after about 30min but at least we got wet. It's been a while and it was great! I think my favorite part was the relaxing float downstream to the parking lot. I really need more relaxation in my life :-)
