Rhodes Springs (Leon County)

Corner of Old Plank Rd and Natural Bridge Rd.

(Thanks go out to the staff member at the welcome center for allowing me permission to take these pictures)

According to the Florida Geological Survey Bulletin #66 on pg 205 Rhodes Springs are each considered to be a karst window "meaning a depression opening that reveals portions of a subterranean flow, or the unroofed portion of a cave (a vertical window)" Thus Rhodes is not technically a spring.
