Morrison is a bit murky…

Morrison is a little murky this morning. There is a lot of super-fine particulate matter suspended in the water. In most of the spring bowl the visibility is 8-12’…if I am being very generous. It looks like it does in the afternoon when three or more classes  have been doing check-out dives all day and the bottom is stirred up. However, nobody was in the water early so I can’t say where the silt came from. The side of the spring bowl closest to the floating dock has better vis, 12’+, but when entering from the shore it gets murky very quickly. The layer of murk goes down to at least the training platform. I wasn’t on SCUBA, so I cannot say what the vis is like down deeper in the bowl or the cavern. Not a deal-breaker for me, but not the crystal clear water I was hoping for.

Looking down at the log over the vent, duck fin for scale. Naked eye can make out the log, camera can’t really
