Lake Jackson was known to native Americans as "Disappearing Waters" because it has a long history of completely draining into the Florida Aquifer about every 25 years through the 2 large sinkholes lying beneath it. The last time it drained was September 16, 1999. As you can see from the dry dock in the left side of the picture, it has not completely filled back up yet. Like most lakes in this area, it also has alligators living in it which is why you wouldn't catch me wading in it like that fisherman in the picture.
Very brave fisherman!
Fascinating! When the waters are back up to their 'normal' levels, the road gets submerged too?
Yes the road gets partially submerged because that road is actually part of the boat ramp.
Yikes! I guess he has no fear of alligators! Welcome to City Daily Photo! :)
