Balmorhea Swimming Pool, Balmorhea State Park, 2007-2008

This view looks from the CCC-built diving board at the deep end toward the circular pool. Many individuals swim laps, some of them on a daily basis year around. The pool also attracts scuba divers from Texas, New Mexico, and beyond. In combination, the high altitude of Balmorhea and the overall depth of the springs satisfy the criteria for open water diving, allowing many to earn a special scuba certification.
