Torrential rain causes hiking trail in Brazil to turn into crystal clear underwater world
Even though it's a flood, it looks spectacular...
The Olho D'Agua river in Bonito, Brazil flooded in early February following some torrential rain, and it created this stunning underwater spectacle.
The footage was captured at Recanto Ecológico Rio da Prata, a nature reserve in Jardim, Brazil.

The description on the video said:
"Despite the flood, on the day the video was recorded the waters of the Olho D'Agua river remained crystal clear due to their conserved riparian forest and being inside a Private Reserve of the Natural Patrimony - PRNP, a type of Conservation Unit."
People go to the park to hike, horseback ride, birdwatch, and scuba dive at the park.
It's located at the junction of two rivers, da Prata and Olho D’Agua. The heavy rains in early February caused the Rio da Prata to dam up, raising the level of the Olho D’Agua and causing the area to flood briefly.
According to the video description, this was a rare episode, and by the end of the day the river had returned to its normal level.
What a stunning scene it was, while it lasted...
