But there are other springs, none as large as that one, but five altogether, strung out along the Niagara Escarpment over 3 or 4 miles, all apparently emerging somehow from the Wodehouse watershed. This is one of those other small streams much lower down the slopes.
And this is another spring at Talisman Mountain Springs Inn, as it is now known. This one has been tapped to provide the water supply for the village of Kimberley and a nearby subdivision, so only the overflow plunges out of those two green pipes in the hillside.
The stream gets smaller as it goes downstream, and there are several additional springs along the slope. I think the mystery might be solved if there are other sinkholes along the channel that we don't know about, taking away some of the water, which in turn feeds these other springs.
If you count the dark streams flowing east that I've highlighted, you'll see that there are five springs altogether. I've sketched some dashed lines to show my 'theoretical' idea that there are additional sinkholes someplace upstream feeding these springs.
I've really enjoyed putting this series on the karst together, especially because it has forced me to try and express it all clearly, and to find all my relevant photos. Sorry if it got long and technical in parts, but I'm really pleased with the results!
