Georgia is blessed with two tremendous waterways – The Chattahoochee River and the Okefenokee Swamp. For years, I’ve taken friends into the swamp on 3-4 day canoe excursions. Think car-camping convenience, but on the water.
Once you’ve experienced this, you’ll understand my feeling that “this is truly God’s country.” Black tannic waters, cattails and lily pads, white egrets with expansive wingspans and, of course, more alligators than you can count. Their red glowing eyes at nightfall are quite spectacular!
The Okefenokee Swamp is now threatened by mining operations.
