Flying south
Loop around Loop Road

There’s always lots to see …

On a flight over Big Cypress Nat’l Preserve.

We flew clockwise around Loop Road

On this trip south of Tamiami Trail, we see a swamp mirror (reflecting the clouds), the Pinecrest Chain of Hammocks, Gum Slough, Loop Road, Sweetwater Strand and Gator Hook Strand and Trail.

“Dotted line” in the swamp
People love them but water could care less

Maps are full of dotted lines …

That are all but invisible out in the swamp.

The Pinecrest chain of hammocks
is a linear run of high ground that marks
the transition between the Everglades
and the Big Cypress Swamp,
looking north

That’s what makes the Pinecrest chain of hammocks …

Stand out so much.

The chain of hammocks are not contingous,

But they more or less run along a straight line.

At about the same spot,
looking south

Best of all you can actually see them.

Unlike all those imaginary political dotted lines.
