Spring Mill State Park, Mitchell, Indiana.

The very cold water as it comes out of Hamer Cave generates a fog over the pool of water. Kinda cool., I can see way, in the older days, the water could be consider magical by the Native Americans of this area. This is very cold water. 50 some degrees all year round meaning a very, very large underground cavity. Very deep cave.

This is the pool of water that was dammed by the first white settlers to this area. The water was/is used to turn a grist mill that still runs today. The grist mill was built in 1836. A saw mill was soon added after the grit mill was founded.

This image almost looks 3D. And I like the green to blue in the water as it comes over the damn.

Cool! I went there just yesterday. We could go in the caves though. The bats had some kind of disease.

Yes the bat problem. I want to go in several of the cave myself.

That should have been "couldn't", darn typo.
Still, too bad about the bats. I hope the caretakers can find a cure for whatever disease they have.
