In December of 2017, some friends and I visited the northernmost part of the Arthur R Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, part of the Everglades in Florida. We took only a brief tour through a cypress swamp, but it was enough to give me a desire to visit more of the Everglades--a unique ecosystem in all the world! Here are a few photos from the tour. More to come in part 2.
