Beautiful Morning on the Ochlockonee

I enjoyed the peace and harmony of the Ochlocknoee River yesterday while paddling upstream from Mack Landing. The sweet scent of tupelo flowers attracted hords of bees, so there was a continuous background hum throughout the vast floodplain forest. The river stage had receeded since my last visit during the winter rains several months ago, and the shallow, still water in the oxbows now provides a safe haven for frogs, snakes and turtles.

  1. Sweet, Bob. Looks like a beautiful morning. (Wish I could hear the hum of bees around here... well, other than the carpenter bees.)
