There is nothing like it in the world; the exhilaration and delightful feeling of jumping into 72 degree clear cerulean springs on a hot summer’s day in the sacred spaces of Florida’s hidden treasures. I’ve never felt such pure euphoria and connection to my surroundings as those times swimming in the natural Florida springs. There is nature at its purest form gurgling out from below, tickling your toes and daring you to dive into its depths to witness the primordial bubbles still pumping volumes of our most precious resource on Earth. From the first time and after each subsequent visit to our state’s liquid gems I am left in complete awe of nature at its finest.

I recently visited a string of natural springs that blew my mind, and I don't put that out there lightly.
In the past my comrades and I have not only visited, but camped and canoed or kayaked many of our state's most beautiful springs. It's like a natural cure for anything that might ail you.
To protect this amazing gem I won't be listing the exact location of this spring, but for those of you who have seen this precious sapphire sparkling in the sunlight....you wouldn't forget it - ever.
Read about this place, and the vital importance of saving our springs in this poignant article and beautiful slideshow on Examiner.com here.
