Bypassed!

I was amazed to see how much water ...

Was flowing down the State Road 29 canal earlier today.

Water flowing south in the SR29 Canal
near Bear Island Grade

Unfortunately, none of that water finds its way

Under the bridges (see photo below) into the Panther Refuge ...


Or downstream from there into Fakahatchee Strand.

These bridges "look big" but
they convey little (if any) water
into the Panther Refuge (left),
looking North

The reason?

Of course the canal is the easiest path (i.e. water's easiest route) ...


And as a result bypasses the swamp.
