Legend for Summary of Features Terms



To assist the user of this document, each full spring description begins with a photograph and a quick summary of important features. The opening, "encompassing" photograph attempts to capture, as much a possible, the spring as a whole. Most springs, however, cannot be "captured" in a single photo or from one perspective. Subsequent thumbnail photographs highlight other significant, unique, appealing, or revealing spring features and aspects.  Over half of the spring descriptions have photographs.

Standardized terms will be used across most feature categories to rate important aspects of individual springs. The general feature rating scale is as follows:
