Islands in the stream

The Everglades is mostly ridge and slough …

As far as the eye can see.

Can you see the tree island?
Can you see the direction of flow?

Tree islands are down there, too.

They dot the shallow freshwater sea as tear-dropped shaped mounds of dry and rarer still – shaded! – archipelagos oriented in the direction of regional flow …

Better known as the River of Grass.
