Secret Ponds

Hidden Pond
Today during a lull at work I went for a shortish hike on a deer trail behind one of our fields. I came across a series of ponds that I had been told about. They were man made - originally test pits by a gravel mining company that filled up with spring water.  The Szalay's tried to buy this land years ago to farm but the owners leased it to the Wilson's instead(who tore it up and left it worthless) - now its part of the National Park.  Ever been to Indigo Lake?  It is a former gravel mine dug by the Wilson's also(they even borrowed the irrigation pump from the Szalay's to get their equipment out before it filled up with water).  
The water in the above pond really looked like that - no Photoshop trickery.
