Here’s another one that’ll get trotted out in earnest on the Florida Hikes! blog once I transcribe all my notes from the hike. Talk about a beauty spot, and a hard-won one. I found this treasure deep within the forests of Washington County, between Fountain and Ebro, north of Panama City, after a rigorous several miles of hiking on rough terrain, tall bluffs, and broken karst landscapes. It was a geologically fulfilling stop, and this aquamarine pool was the ultimate prize. Too bad it was too chilly for a dip! You can get there by road, too … shhh … but it feels better when it surprises you along a hike. And no, I’m not sharing the name, yet. I still have to dig that out of my audio files.
