The weird sensation of paddling into a forest of drowned trees is all too real. Getting lost in there is also very real! I kept my eye on the compass... Gators are sun lovers and this fellow was not interested in giving up his spot even when I pushed the bow of my boat in really close for a picture. Turtles and swamps naturally go together, so I had to throw this picture in. I never did see Pogo. Maybe he no longer lives in the Okeefenokee Swamp since the name was changed to the Stephen Foster National Park. Doesn't seem to have the same ring to it, does it?
