Everglades National Park
This is a panoramic view taken from the Pa-hay-okee Overlook in the Everglades. The Overlook looks out over the freshwater marl prairie toward Shark River Slough. The primary difference between Slough and prairie is that in the Slough the water is slightly deeper. There are fewer hammocks and more open space in this area of the park. The small trees you can see are Bald Cypress, despite their stunted size, they can be quite old. These cypress tend to be growing in deeper potholes in the prairie.
