This particular spot on the resulting Ichetucknee River was, when I was a lad of 20 or so, a favorite place of similarly young folk who were canoeing, kayaking, and tubing the river. People would stop here on this limestone bluff to leap into the cold, quick current of the Ichetucknee. No longer. I suppose all of that tramping around damaged the flora that needs to grow on that bluff, so the Park officials have now posted it against such activity. But you can still paddle there and snorkle there and swim there. You just can't climb up on the ledges and use them for a diving platform.
|Many a grand moment spent here, leaping like a kid into the water.|
