Airstrip in the swamp

The plane I was on out of Ft Myers got rerouted ...

And for a moment I thought we were going to land here.

It's called Popenhagers ...
Or is it Little Deer?
Just joking!

This is actually an airstrip to a backcountry camp somewhere in the middle of Big Cypress National Preserve.  I took the photo in a helicopter at about 500 ft.

Looks interesting! A place to explore. I am assuming the water was caused by the dredging to build the airstrip.

That's not much of an air strip! I'd feel much more comfortable landing at Miami-Dade, above...

There is more room for sure.
