Big Spring Cove may be underlain by carbonate rocks. I have not seen any exposed but then I have not extensively explored the cove. There are a series of sinks in the cove that seasonally hold water. They are important amphibian breeding sites. This is the lowest in elevation of the three ponds. It was full of water earlier in the summer:
