The spring forms a small semicircular pool or alcove at the edge ofthe river. On date of visit (January 2001), a time of historic drought,the pool was about 15 feet wide and 2 feet deep. There was a mild but clearlyvisible boil near the center of the pool, and water flowed from small openingsin the bottom. Water in the pool is fairly clear and greenish. The landaround the pool is thick floodplain forest, with a swampy area to the immediateeast upriver of the spring.
- The spring could be used for wading or sitting in the water. It is tooshallow for swimming.
- A tree at the downstream edge of the pool provides a nice perch for viewingand photographing.
A cute little spring.
