Monsters of the midway

Halfway between Miami and Naples ...

are groves of giant cypress that scrape top of the sky.

I'll let you be the judge

Was the Big in Big Cypress Swamp
named for the individual size or vast number of trees?

If it were the latter,
Wouldn't they have called it
Many Cypress Swamp instead?

Aren't they beautiful? But I vote for the size of the swamp--it's huge.

I think that I have to agree with Lynda...The size of the swamp trumps the size of the trees.

There's something about being in kneed deep water (looking up) that makes them seem probably taller than they are.

Also, they're twice as tall if you count the reflection.
