The spring forms a large pool at the edge of the river and is about75 feet across and semicircular. A small creek flows either from or intothe back of the pool. On date and time of visit (January 2001, just beforesunset), the water was not clear and no flow was visible. The land aroundthe spring is low and is floodplain forest. Hardwood trees line the edgeof the spring, including a large and spreading tree on the downriver (south)side. A great blue heron was fishing in the creek/backwater behind thespring.
There is no apparent use at this very pristine site.
In trying to photograph this spring from a point of altitude, JF slippedand fell out of a tree, the idiot, and limped for the next three weeks.
