Georgia has a few--notably Radium Springs which is neglected by the State and by the local county where it's located. This is completely insane. It was once a part of a private park and people would flock to it to go swimming and snorkeling. No longer. It's considered one of the great natural wonders of Georgia...but you wouldn't know that from the way it's treated by the folk who run my native state.
Alabama has a few of these, also. Again, though, nothing like what is seen in Florida.
So, that's where we're headed in a few weeks. A tour of some springs we've seen before, and a visit to several where we've never been.
