By now this large solution hole should be full of water. It is very dry. The light green fringe next to the grass is the endangered species Isoetes melanospora. In a normal rainfall year it would be completely covering the floor of the pool. It is interesting to see how plants respond to the severe drought. Most of these plant remain dormant. The pools should look like this photo taken last year:
