These are some past pictures of our trips to the Okefenokee Swamp, where we stayed at the federal refuge and state park, some of the critters we saw, and some views from inside the swamp via canoe or other boats.

What a lovely collection of photos, RB. I can see why you love going there. Reptiles and turtles are definitely your thing (as well as galahs!)

Thanks for posting here.

Great photos, RB.
Interesting place; snakes, alligators. No bears? lol
I guess that was your canoe on the SUV?
Thanks for the post.

There are bears there, but in 30 plus years, never seen one in the area of the cabins and campsites. Yes, that is our canoe; we have since given it away and take boat tours with the rangers.....hard to canoe 10 miles a day as one gets older.
