The cypress swamps and bayous of the American Southeast are uniquely beautiful and mysterious. Although bald cypress swamps can be found as far north as Delaware, they are much more common in the southern US states such as Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas. Giant bald cypress trees draped in Spanish moss surround the countless backwaters and channels, offering prime paddling opportunities for wildlife enthusiasts and photographers alike. Each season has its own characteristics, but autumn is by far my favorite time to experience these wonderful places. Cypress trees are deciduous conifers, so each fall their needles turn a crimson red/orange color before dropping from their branches. Additionally, cool mornings can bring mist and fog, creating an amazing atmosphere that you need to see to believe!
