High and dry

When you mention "swamp" in Naples,

It's often Corkscrew, not The Big Cypress, that comes to mind.

The above hydrograph provides a water level summary for Corkscrew Swamp.  Water levels are currently in the light blue zone which means that the higher perched hydric pines are wet. When that happens it corresponds to about a 2 ft depth in the pond apple and as much to 3-5 ft deep in the lettuce lakes.

Water is back up under the boardwalk:

The water line has climbed over 3.5 feet since the start of June.


But not high enough to get your feet wet.

(You'll have to come out to Big Cypress Nat'l Preserve for that.)
