A few days ago the OFM Walking Team took a short side trip to a small swamp a short ways from the main trail. We had not been there before so it was a new adventure for us.



It was only a couple of hundred yards down the trail to get to the swamp. It is only a little over an acre it seems like, but it was very picturesque. The day was cool and the bugs were not flying around and no major swamp critters tried to eat us.



As we entered the area this was the view into the swamp area.




Then several yards later we took another really nice view of the water and vegetation. We feel it is a very pretty swamp.





Then several yards on along we got to the end of the path. A large piece of electrical equipment was there and was the reason for the nice driveway we used to access the swamp. Here is the end of the path view.



After enjoying the path end for a few minutes we eased our way out of the area to continue the morning walk. It was a great way of starting a day of trying to have tooooo much fun.

  2. Any gators in that swamp? Once when we were in the Okefenokee Swamp we saw a small gator next to the road.

  3. When I was a kid we had a swamp near the house that we (mostly my brother and I) spent hours exploring in all seasons. That swamp is a subdivision now - - -
