Outcrop in the glades

Florida's geology doesn't captivate the masses like the Grand Canyon,

But don't mistake that for it not being there.

The Grand Canyon is only 1 mile deep

The Big Cypress Swamp sits on a 3-mile deep layer of marine limestone,

Underneath of which is bedrock broken off from Africa during Pangaea times.

Now that's old Florida.
