Why build a boardwalk in the middle of one of the most impassible swamps in Florida? Well – this boardwalk is there to document one of the stranger natural wonders of Florida, a stand of dwarf bald cypress centuries old and less than 15 feet tall! The Dwarf Cypress Boardwalk is in the wilderness of Tate’s Hell State Forest which is well known for being a wild place. I love the beautiful green soft needles! Seeing this unique bowl of ancient cypress was a blessing – seeing the snake not so much!
