On our first adventure, we reached Ginnie Springs and passed numerous signs about banning Nestle and water is life and stop stealing our water, etc. We continued into the Ginnie Springs store, paid for our camping and diving and immediately hit the spring for an hour long dive. It was beautiful and chilly. My camera lens fogged up when we came out of the cold water and into the hot air. We grabbed some food and moved to the next section of the spring system called Devils Eye. This small hole intersects with the tannin filled Santa Fe river creating a rainbow effect from the super clear cold spring water hitting the warm brown water of the river. The Santa Fe River is fed from these springs, and is in desperate need of a recovery from having water taken from it for our use. I’d heard about these water controversies before so when we got back home I decided to try and find out a little more info.
We implore you, as citizens and as parents, conservationists, and eco-friendly clients to do your own research and educate yourselves about the need to preserve our springs because water is life.
