We were driving by and Ellen wanted to photograph ‘pitcher plants’ in the fog/cloudy day. We knew a spot with easy access so off the road we went.
The Okefenokee Swamp is a shallow, 438,000-acre, peat-filled wetland straddling the Georgia–Florida line in the United States. Huge is the word that comes to mind.
Interesting how the environment is so different from the Lowcountry swamps. Parts of the swamp here are described as prairie.
The water level can change significantly since the only source of water for the swamp is rain.
Like all big swamps once you get inside it’s hot, humid, and easy to lose your direction.
