Ridgewalking in the Swamp

There is a wonderful old growth bald cypress forest in Marion County, FL, not far from where I live. I estimate the trees to be up to 400 years old, if not more. Although the boles of the largest trees are only 4+ ft in diameter, their buttressed bases can be more than 12 ft across. There are no logged stumps, and large old logs are strewn across the ground like pickup sticks. It is a place of wonder and grandeur. I revisited the place this past Sunday, February 10, 2008.

Nothing noteworthy happened. Above are five photos of me, a friend and the general scenery.
