During one of my
adventures I went to Tate's Hell Forest to see the Dwarf
Pond Cypress, about 2 square miles are no more than 15' high,
are aged at 300 years old. It was quite an interesting place. I
traveled East, approx.,20 miles to see The Crooked River
Next, about 80 miles to see The St. Marks Lighthouse, both are
150 years old.
There are so
many Large Pines along Hwy 98 as you drive along miles of
waterfront, at times the roadway is within feet of the Gulf. A
behold, this is the Forgotten Fla., little or no development.
Apalachicola is the western city on the river, then there's
across the Bay. Next is Carrabelle, St. Teresa, Panacea and St.
All of these are small Old fishing towns. Anyway enought of my
Ed, I'll send some photos of the Oaks and some of Tate's Hell
