Overview

Texas, San Marcos, on the old Chisholm cattle trail – where Central, South, and East Texas collide. Here is where Latin America meets Anglo America, meets the US South, US West and US Midwest – in and around the ancient grounds and waters of what is now called San Marcos, where more than 200 springs shoot out from three main fissures and other openings within a couple hundred yards of each other – now engulfed at the bottom of Spring Lake, the current visible source of the San Marcos River – the only home of a few unique plant and animal species, including the Texas blind salamander, fishes, and Texas wild rice. The only home. Past a Free the Springs! sign tacked onto an old elm by a local environmental group, I walked up to Spring Lake where I sat on the bank and stared into the reeds of the marsh – full moon burning water, almost too bright. The water breathed, wet marshy.
