"No name" swamp

It always bugs me about this part of the swamp,

It doesn't have a name, a good one at least.

Looking West 
into the Big Cypress
from above the L-28
about 5 miles north
of US41

By default we call it the Jetport (i.e. the 39 square mile tract) or the alternatively "the area between 11 Mile Road and the L-28."  And for good reason: in reviewing the quadrangle map there simply aren't any physiographic names for this area, in part I think because it was slated for an airport that never got built.

In that respect it needs a proper name.


To me it looks a lot like Mullet Slough.

Not surprising since that's where it gets its flow.
