The Everglades is a World Heritage site; a unique 50 mile wide river that flows sometimes only inches deep, through the southern tip of Florida. That it is a habitat, a confluence of nature and geology, that occurs nowhere else on earth is only one of the reasons it earned the classification. It is a haven for over 20 rare and endangered species and one of the most important bird habitats in North America. And yet, there is constant encroachment and threat of development.
Its vastness is overwhelming to me. I revel in the intimate places I find while wandering through the park, the movement of water that forms this river and its inhabitants as I pass and the reflections in quiet places along the way.
