Okefenokee and Doerun Georgia in 2003.

Return to the Trip Overview

Spider web:
There isn't very much that has to be said about the subjects in this picture that I haven't already. The spider web caught my eye as we canoed by in the morning.

By the way, the morning we canoed away from Floyds Island we started to see a few small specimens of Sarracenia psittacina--nothing very spectacular, however. The day was spent botanizing, canoeing, birding, and photographing. We reached Bluff Lake shelter early, after only 13 km of paddling.

Bluff Lake is a spectacular site for pitcher plants. Indeed, the finest stands of Sarracenia minor var. okefenokeensis we saw were in this area. Fortunately for the more casual tripper, this is within the day-use area. So while heading from Kingfisher Landing to Maul Hammock would be the place to go to see hybrids, heading to Bluff Lake would get you the best views of Sarracenia minor var. okefenokeensis. (The trip to Bluff Lake and back would be a long, hard day for someone not in very good shape!)
