Great news! There is a new way for you to browse for swimming hole information through a website called Outly. This easier to use graphical interface was created in collaboration with my colleagues at Outside Analytics. In addition to swimming hole info, the Outly site has camping, hiking and other information that you can use to plan your next outdoor adventure.

Below is a screen shot of the Outly interface. The menu on the left lists several outdoor "layers" that you can use to customize the map to plan your adventures. Simply select "Swimming Holes" from the "Water" layer and browse the map on the right. Click on the swimming hole icon on the map to see the information about that swimming hole. It's that simple! Do send me a message to let me know what you think about this new format.

Please send an E-MAIL if you have a swimming hole to add or if you have more information about one that is already listed. Thank you.
