Big Cypress Boardwalk (End of Path) - 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.)
Navigate around this 360° view at the end of the Big Cypress Bend boardwalk at Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park. The deeper waters in the swamp formed this "lake" where we had a brief glimpse of an alligator before it silently submerged below the waters surface.
When the photo is first loaded you are looking from the end of the Big Cypress Bend elevated wooden boardwalk at a ponded swamp area in Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park. Cypress trees and other smaller vegetation border the pond.
Navigating to the right, the ponded waters and cypress trees are seen beyond the boardwalk. Continuing to the right, cypress trees and other vegetation are seen behind the boardwalk sitting area.
As you continue the 360-degree turn to the images starting point, you see the boardwalk leading up to the observation area, cypress trees and other vegetation.
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).
