Congaree National Park

Here are some more shots of the Congaree National Park. This ‘floodplain” forest was quite diversified and amazing. And some of the trees were Huge. Some have even called them the Sequoias of the East.

The cypress tree’s roots grow up – and are called “knees”. I had never seen them before, and thought they were pretty darn interesting. They reminded me of families of ground hogs sticking their heads out of holes!
