Big Cypress Boardwalk - Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park

(This photo is a 360-degree IPIX interactive image, which allows you to navigate with your mouse: up, down, right and left, in order to see the entire surrounding landscape - what out for those trees!)

When the photo is first loaded you are looking down a slightly curved section of an elevated wooden boardwalk, bordered by a forested area. Dominating the view right-front, a large, buttressed, cypress trunk appears to grow up through the boardwalk which has been built around this huge tree. A strangler fig tree grows alongside of this cypress.

Navigating to the right, another large, buttressed, cypress trunk is seen growing "through" the boardwalk. A forested area can be seen beyond the boardwalk. Continuing to the right, you see the boardwalk curving through more of the forested area.

As you continue the 360-degree turn to the image’s starting point, the lush understory of the forest is readily seen.

Navigating up with your mouse, you can see the sun shining through the tall canopy. Navigating down, you see the South Florida Information Access (SOFIA) web site logo, which is linked to the SOFIA main page (http://sofia.usgs.gov).
