Mineral water spring, nr Etseri, March 2007

Such springs are almost sacred places in Georgia. There are close to 2000 of them, generally protected from the elements, many ancient like this one, used by locals, with various claimed curative powers depending on their mineral content. (There's a "weeping wall" right in Tbilisi the water of which is supposed to be very good for eyesight.)
