“Freezing tropical-blue water, a magical little waterfall… this swimming hole couldn’t be more perfect if it tried. You’ll find this special spot in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in northern Virginia (and this isn’t the only waterfall you’ll find!)”. ~ @jessfischer9

"Crater Lake has to be the coolest (and one of the coldest) places I've ever swum. Oregon is amazing!" ~ @twosmallpotatoes

"The icy water enveloped our bodies as we hurled ourselves into the frigid glacier run-off. Sheer panic took over and I was already moving towards the shore before I had even come up for air. We were in and out of the water so fast, I could barely process what had just happened, and we were all suffering from serious brain freeze. As the sun warmed us back up, the shock began to fade, and the water started calling to us once more." ~ @mrsdaniellephillips
