Spring on the Suwannee River

During the 90’s I paddled the Suwannee River more times than I can remember. I was usually on this river for three weeks, working with adjudicated youth. The nature of the work meant there wasn’t too much time to view the river through a camera, but even now I can remember appreciating the palmetto-laden sandy banks on the upper stretches of the river, and the cypress and springs on the lower. I made a couple of trips back this season, just for a night or two and had some time to be on the river in solitude and to take in the natural world without all the humanness. This is the Suwannee in spring.
