    This is where I grew up. We drank from this spring all the time when passing by, walking or riding our bikes or perhaps on a drive out to the boat launch. My dad uses it to gather water for homebrewing. I didn’t know how lucky I was to have such a resource right in town. Now I drive more like 60 miles for spring water.

    This is known as the watering trough.
    Delicious cold clear water all year long.

    Our childhood home was next to this “spring”! It was known as the “watering trough”. It is connected to vein of artesian wells throughout the neighborhood.
