Morrison Springs, Walton County

This is what Morrison Springs looked like yesterday morning. NYD dives are probably out unless you want to practice zero-viz skills. Kayaking is probably on the menu if you are mindful of the river current further down the run.

Morrison is of course flooded after Hurricane Michael but there doesn’t appear to be any damage to the facilities or even the trees around the park and basin. The county health department has the “no swimming” sign up. I saw a flock of turkeys when I pulled into the parking lot and a kingfisher in the spring basin. There was a fisherman and this guy , although he wasn’t in the water.

The visibility at Morrison is at least 12′ and the county health department has re-posted the high bacteria warning. There are a lot of leaves on the bottom and floating on the surface.
