The Everglades

The Everglades- a place of raw and savage beauty... ...of lush green emerald palm fronds, stunted Poisonwood and brackish gator filled swamp... ...of strangled trees, unearthly mangroves and a scent so rich and damp it lays like a mossy blanket over you... though it is not stagnant, it teams with life... home to those who slither and crawl... ...those who scurry unseen into the depths of bottomless shadows... snakes, spiders, vultures and... ... the Geico Gecko... What? He could be visiting! Maybe even seeking a tax shelter... or visiting elderly relatives... or (with that vibrant colored beard) maybe he's visiting South Beach... ya never know.
