Okefenokee ("Land of the Trembling Earth") NWR was established in 1937 and spans 402,000 acres of swamp, lakes, rivers is one of the largest and best preserved fresh water systems in America.
A few years later it became a National Wildlife Refuge.
As we drove on to the property, it seemed as if it is well maintained and well funded which is nice to see. The NWR is a great place to do a lot of different things including, hiking, fishing, hunting, nature photography and wilderness canoeing.
Some hardy souls were off on a guided boat tour of the grounds. We opted for a picnic lunch and walked around the grounds."Travels with Emma" fame, got in touch with us and said to come on over for a tour. We didn't know she was here until after we returned, but we hope to connect with her in a few days and do just that.
Thanks for joining us on the Roadrunner Chronicles! Until next time...
