I remember hearing the name Okefenokee Swamp for quite some time now.  Even back when I was a kid.  Maybe in a book or a movie?  Anyway, I’d always been intrigued by the name and it did work to conjure up images in my mind of alligators and a real place of mystery.  Well, I finally got a chance to go there (it’s in southern Georgia) and though different than my childhood image, it didn’t disappoint.  The afternoon and evening I spent there I was met by an eerily cloudy sky, plenty of humid, still air, and lightning going off over the swamp.  Certainly different than the west coast.  I found it an ominous blend of creepy and uniquely beautiful.  Have you been there?  What do you think?
