    There's just something magical about this place with the clear dark water below and the soft wispy cypress needles above, the cypress trees are usually covered with bromeliads, spiky air plants that gather water from dew and rain and simply use their host trees for support. On a windy day, the cypress trees clatter just a little bit as they brush up against each other.

  4. Allyson Gantt:

    Generally speaking, we do the walks in shallow water, the alligators are typically near deeper water. That said, occasionally we see them in the culverts or a canal near the road where we enter. Once, when I was in a very typical cypress dome with a deep hole in the center, we saw a good-size alligator who was clearly the resident of the deep hole in the center of the dome. Other times, late in the dry season, I've seen alligators left in the few patches of water that remain. We tromped by in the mud, without disturbing the alligator in the water hole.

    When I am dead, my dearest, Sing no sad songs for me Plant thou no roses at my head, Nor shady cypress tree. Be the green grass above me With showers and dewdrops wet And if thou wilt, remember And if thou wilt, forget.
