Biking for new karstography

I took a slow bike ride today south and west of McIntosh, FL to look for karst features and potential cave locations. The goal was to find properties where I might want to ask landowners if they will allow me to look for caves on their properties. I took a few photos of potential properties, mainly along the route through back roads to Dungarvin Rd, and along the latter, finding little of real interest elsewhere.

I covered a total of approximately 16.5 miles, and my butt feels every mile of it! I stopped along the way at the bar and grill at the Orange Lake public boat ramp to have a beer and a fish sandwich, and a break, and then finished the ride. I am including a Google Earth photo showing the route I took, and a picture of one sinkhole with water that looked plugged. There was nothing else of note to mention.
