    That railroad bridge is too dinky for a railroad and looks like a water control structure. Boards can be dropped down those slots to pond the water upstream. Maybe they did do that while logging downstream and dragging everything to the river. Then the water would be released to carry the logs to navigable water.

    Great photos!
    Hey Ozzy, How far from salt water are those dead cypress? The large number of dead ones makes me think that salt water intrusion killed them. Cypress are normally a very hardy species of tree but they have an extremely deep tap root and are the first to show the effects of salt water.

    Jonathen Dickson State park here in Florida is experiencing the dying of a large bald cypress forest. State Wildlife Officials blame it on draining of wetlands, for housing developments, for the intrusion of the salt water.
    It is pretty complicated how this takes place but a Conservation Officer explained it to me and it makes perfect sense. It would/is a shame to lose a whole cypress forest like that. It ruins a whole ecosystem.

    You seem to have had a great adventure. I'll bet that would be a spooky place on a hot summer night...A full moon, mosquitos, bats zooming past your head, owls hooting, Hippagillarunners and Crockapotimis bumping the canoe... probably need a wee bit of Wild Turkey to steel your nerves.

    It all evens out in the end - what you lack in water you more than make up for with cold and wind.
