About This Image

This was my destination when I made my wrong turn - but I was very glad to find this unusual spot - especially after 3 days of non-stop rain.

The Santa Fe River is an offshoot of the Suwannee River in Florida. This is called a 'sink' because the river does something rather unusual at this point - it drops and runs underground for 3 1/2 miles, reemerging in another park. I was surprised to see the surface stillness. Nothing indicates that the river is even moving with the thick algae sitting on the top - you can't even hear the river at this point.

Apparently there are many subterranean caves throughout this area and in the river's underground passage - much of which is still to be explored.
