When I arrived at the Okefenokee swamp it had grown overcast and was approaching dark. There was hardly anyone around and it was quite muggy. Just a couple hours to explore its mystery. And mysterious it was. Maybe it was the ominous weather, but it truly was a bit spooky. Perfect. I managed to get around and walk through the brush and along the trails when I ran into this old homestead. Nobody around. It could have been 100 years ago. Maybe they were off looking for alligator meat.
