Silver Springs, Florida

We took the touristy trip to Silver Springs....home of a huge freshwater spring which feeds the Silver River, and then into the Oklawaha River, and eventually into the Saint John's River. The Saint John's is one of five US rivers which flow North!

Silver Springs is famous for the glassbottom boats, and they are amazing for what you can see. Of course, they are assisted greatly by the most clear, sparkling water I have ever seen.

The water in the above picture is more than 20 feet deep. The clarity made it impossible to gauge depth, and thus 6 feet of water looked the same as 35 feet of water.

The boat trip was fun, and end of September is a great time with small crowds.
