This is one of the roads that runs through over 12,000 acres of marsh lands. The wooden ‘trunk’ on the left side is the same mechanism that has manually regulated these marshes for hundreds of years.
We photograph here most of the year and the environment is ‘most interesting’. Winter is windy and cold with temperatures usually a little above freezing. However, the rest of the year is hot, then hotter.
That’s OK though as long as we have a breeze. If there is none, the bugs can be brutal ! Who cares about Alligators when you have a million gnats chewing on you.
Besides all that, it’s one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen.
