As we publish our wildlife articles descriptions of the locations usually are included. Personally I find it impossible to accurately describe some of these places.
While out the day I changed to a shorter lens allowing me to capture what was around me.
To help myself as much as anything I chose to stand in the cross roads of old dikes to get an image of each direction. I did a video but never did finish.
To start, the image above shows the direction we had come to reach this point. In the distance our car sits on the dirt road. A gate prevents driving out here any further so we walk from here on.
This is the opposite direction, we walk from here on. The grasses have grown tall enough to block our view on either side. However this is a dike road, so marsh is down behind the grasses (oh, and things that live in the marsh are down there too).
Since this is the cross road we can walk left or right here too. Above, and you can see the water, is a dike. There is an island end of this road, and another dirt road with ‘the eagle trees’.
Finally we have the last direction, complete with a water levy system (truck) to control the flow. The Department of Natural Resources keeps the water flowing, or draining, depending on the season and weather.
Glue together all the views we see here makes a ‘tiny speck’ within this marshland.
Pretty impressive, beautiful, and don’t run out of gas. No cell service.
