The red color is sulfur and iron. This water comes from coal-mine runoff. At this spot it is coming down from a mountain, where it then shoots into the air about six or seven feet high. The water mixes and splashes down hills and around a small wooded area until it finally merges into a creek. This whole area with its wooded surroundings are colored with this red color. There are standing pockets of water with the red deposits and leaves with various unknown but beautiful substances floating on the surface. I thing some of the iridescent color is petroleum. The trees and ground and the creek bed make quite a surreal land and waterscape. It's very beautiful in it's own way. Unless you think of it as the extreme pollution it is. Nothing lives in this water.
