can be fine when coming from a spring like this.  I didn't bother filtering this source of water in the NW sector.

Wild azz guess to location - Croton or Dripping Springs area?

Actually, Don, these are 2005 pics.  I just rolled my car over to some flowing water in the NW sector and followed it.  One of those random long hikes.  I expect to always find interesting things around the water(duh).  Bottom line is I don't have the coordinates. I'm about to post some more water pics of an artsy nature(true and false color).

That being said, it would be one of the springs in the Oak Creek drainage.  Very cool 8) pictures I might add.  Keep em coming!
