Wow. These photos are so beautiful and a treat for those of us who are taking a break in the office.

Wonderful pictures! Is this really a natural spring that was piped for something long ago and is sort of restoring itself? If so natural springs like this are one of the neatest types of habitat with a tremendous amount of the most threatened native species. Is it currently relatively protected from future surface disturbance?

My avocation is primarily the caddis that inhabit such areas. Many of these areas are not marked on maps and have never been sampled to see what may be there. In the arid west we are still finding many new species at sites like this - although they are seldom this pretty.

For those of you wandering fisher persons who come across these in your other pursuits I would love to know where they are in case I get in the area to while collecting caddis sometime. Or if any of you have easy access to something like this and are interesting in collecting please contact me off line.

I write a monthly Column for Midwest Outdoors Magazine. I would like to hear more about the springs? Do they have a name so I can research it for a story?

Thanks

LenH - Did I get your request right? You want to know where the springs in the pictures are?
