Rain re-nourished swamp

It's been a rainy week in the swamp.

Here's some scenic photos of those clouds in action.



South of Tamiami Trail
in the vicinity of New River Strand
looking northeast


Near the mouth of Turner River
looking upstream.  If you look closely
you can see the orphaned mile of
Turner River canal that was filled in
in 1996 and helped steer water back
to the river.


Yes, that's flooded, but it's not
the "wetting front."  It's the line in
the swamp where the Moon Fish
Wildfire stopped, looking east
into the Everglades

The swamp is a flood and fire adapted ecosystem.

So goes flood and fire, so goes the swamp.
