Flamingo, Everglades National Park, Florida- click to see full size image
Highway 9336 ends at the area called Flamingo when it reaches the shore of Florida Bay. This photo was taken from the landing at the Flamingo Visitor Center. The small islands in Florida Bay are called key's. There are over 200 of these mangrove islands in the bay. The water of the bay is only about 6 feet deep maximum, most of the area is less than 3 feet deep! Boaters must be extremely careful due to the shallow water.
