Fakahatchee Strand


This photo was taken I’m the middle of a Cypress marsh which is in the Big Cypress Fakahatchee National Preserve. To get there you travel a dirt road for six miles then walk from there. In my whole life I have never been to a more quite place, it is almost totally silent except for the occasional crackle of decaying vegetation and the distant cry of an unidentified resident of the marsh. There was not another human being for miles and it was spooky at first then the peace followed. It was very comforting to know there are still places on Mother Earth that are being protected and left untouched. I will return.
