Alley Spring 3

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 10 October 2019 in Landscape & Rural.

Alley Spring is the 7th largest spring in Missouri. The water maintains a temperature of 57 degrees year round. Rainfall and runoff entering sinkholes 15 miles to the northwest has been determined to enter a labyrinth of cave passageways formed in dissolved dolomite (a type of limestone) and eventually empties into Alley Spring.

It looks like it has a lot of surface and is shallow, so it must flow pretty rapidly to keep a constant temperature (especially during hot Missouri summers!).

I like the bright reflections that seem more colorful than the clothing reflected.
