- Remote, picturesque and rural, northwest Florida is a long way from major population centers. But that's what it takes to get off the beaten path.

- Florida has more than 700 natural freshwater springs, more than anywhere else on earth, with water so pristine that it is not uncommon to spot exotic fish and manatee floating nearby.

- While on our recent camping trip to the Suwanee River State Park, we decided to make the trek to Wes Skiles Peacock Springs State Park. The park is off the beaten path and among many farms in Live Oak, Fla., but it's my goal to visit as many of the state's springs as possible, so we added this one to our list.

- Unfortunately for me, my time in Florida was coming to an end. To mark the occasion, Tom and Denise helped me to pack in a week full of some really awesome dives. To start it off Denise and I went to check out a Dayo favorite, Blue Springs. This is an awesome dive site, with a nice cavern zone and a first magnitude spring at about 110'

- A few of the sweet gum trees still had some bright red fall leaves. From the picnic area we saw a sign that just said 'orange grove'. We weren't sure what it was, so we took a short walk and discovered this beautiful spring with steep limestone walls. It was a beautiful spot.

- From an obscure country highway, one turns onto a lonely road past farmland, complete with perfectly-rolled hay bales on green pasture. Then it's a dirt road into the park, which has neither pavement nor buildings. The two times I've been there, no ranger was on duty ' the park fee is based on an honor system.
