Was flowing down the State Road 29 canal earlier today.
|Water flowing south in the SR29 Canal|
near Bear Island Grade
Unfortunately, none of that water finds its way
Under the bridges (see photo below) into the Panther Refuge ...
Or downstream from there into Fakahatchee Strand.
|These bridges "look big" but|
they convey little (if any) water
into the Panther Refuge (left),
Of course the canal is the easiest path (i.e. water's easiest route) ...
And as a result bypasses the swamp.
