Swamp Walking in the Everglades

When researching various activities to do in the Everglades I found out there are many ways to see them- by air boat, canoe, flat boat, hiking, and the one that really piqued my interest- swamp walking.  I immediately ruled out the air boats as they are terrible for the environment and local wildlife so that left me with the other four options and over the course of 2 and a half days my dad and I managed to do all four.  I decided to start on a high note with swamp walking at Clyde Butcher's Big Cypress Gallery.  I had so much fun wading through the thigh high water and checking out birds and baby alligators.  The light was just gorgeous and the vegetation incredible.  I could easily see how Clyde is so inspired to create his stunning black and white master pieces.  Here are some of my favorites from the afternoon.
