The presumed spring was dry on date of visit in January 2001, a periodof historic drought. A depression was located at the back of a 250-footdry run that might be the spring pool. The dry pool was oval and about50 by 100 feet in diameter. Land above the site is cleared, but below thespring is floodplain forest.
The authors had difficulty locating several springs in this stretchof the Santa Fe that are described and photographed in the 1998 publication,Springsof the Suwannee River Basin in Florida (Hornsby & Ceryak, pp. 49-53).They wondered if all the springs in this section—all of which are small—weredry. Based on the description in Hornsby & Ceryak, the most likelymatch for this site is GIL729972 (p. 52). There is just as good achance this this site is not a spring at all.
