Center of a strand is hard to find

Cypress domes are isolated holes …

Whereas strands are directional swales.

All the major strands are named …

Whereas none of the cypress domes are.

I sort of prefer the domes over strands because for one I like the idea of being in a no name swamp that you can’t put a pithy label on exactly where you were, thus promoting a feeling of being lost but still knowing where you are.

Plus, they are easier to walk into.

Swamp walks are a slow go

You have to trudge through a lot of trees to find the center of a strand.

Getting there isn’t always easy going.
