North Florida is one of my favorite places for trees. There are ancient Bald Cypress on the Suwannee, Santa Fe and Ichetuknee Rivers. I'm enriched by their presence and wonder what stories they could tell if they could speak. The kayak in the picture is 12 feet long. The Cypress tree pictured is older than my grandparents, maybe even my great grandparents. I'd love to know how many Spaniards passed this tree. Maybe even Ponce de Leon as he searched for the "Fountain of Youth" on the Ichetuknee River.
