    Yes and no.

    It was no longer there, but I found all the clues and I was prepared in case that happened. I brought along a new container and log book. I replaced it, signed the log book, so technically I found it.

    Neat. It looks like the dead trees are baldcypress, do you think the swamp got inundated with salt water for a period and killed the trees? It would have killed the cp’s too, atleast there
    that makes no logic

    The trees were cypress, pine and oak. Most of the dead trees were old. There were dead trees all over, not only in the brackish marsh. The tree in the marsh was all dead and they were all very old. So I think the marsh for what ever reason expanded
    upriver. The reason there were no young trees was because the seeds couldn't grow in the brackish environment. There dead trees farther upriver I think is just a natural death of old trees. They even though they are dead they are very important to the environment. They are homes to woodpeckers and the also provide food for them.

    Well...20 minutes and the pics are still downloading. But from what I've seen so far, it looks like an AWSOME trip. I wish I could have gone. Areas like that have been little touched by human hands so you are seeing nature in her raw beauty. The photos are beautiful. I like the pics of the bridges no longer functioning. Makes you wonder what it was like back when they were being used...by whom and what for.

    That's a GREAT travelogue. I enjoy hearing about and seeing the pics of your adventures. Best thing next to being there. But I'd rather have been there!

    The girl at the drive thru pointed to the kayak tied to the top of my jeep and asked "Are you going out in that as cold as it is?" I said "Yes" She said "Wow you're crazy!" She was probably right.
    but it doesn't GET cold in NC! you're both crazy.


    looks so beautiful and tranquil out there. thanks for posting, ozzy!

    It doesn't get cold in NC? I live in the most southern part of NC, right next to the ocean. I'm sure it's safe to say that I live in the warmest part of the state. In 89 the temp dropped to 0f . I don't care where you are, that's cold. It's been down to 12f this year. That's cold
