Highest spot in swamp

Usually we think of the swamp getting higher ...

The farther you get from the coast.

Can you see the circular green spot?
That's Chokoloskee Island. It didn't have
road access to the mainland until 1953.

Chokoloskee is the exception.

It rounds out at about 20 feet above sea level.


It was the original gateway into the swamp for the region's first inhabitants, the Calusa Tribe.
