    The pictures didn't look anything like Cypress.

    It is 10 miles north of I-10 on 79 above Bonifay. http://valleyspringllc.com/id3.html This link has a pic of the spring / cave source. Maybe Mat will pipe up. He probably knows a bunch about this considering the large books of info he has put together.

    Definately not Cypress.

    I have my eyes set on several springs along Wrights Creek, just haven't visited them in person. I'm pretty sure I know which one this is though :P There definition of cave might be kinda funny.

    Default A Natural Spring

    Obviously the potentiometric surface of the Floridan is above the elevation of the ground along Wright's Creek. That being said, this may not be a naturally occurring spring.

    The pictures of the spring run look fishy. Not a lot of erosion on the banks, or exposed limestone.

    It may be a drilled well that wasn't properly abandoned (plugged), or it is a well that was never intended to be plugged (providing real estate value). Either way, the drilled out area will "spring" ground water.

    There was a significant amount of Real Estate speculation in that area back in 05-06, so nothing would surprise me there.
