When most people think of fall foliage, they think of afternoon hikes in the Smokey Mountains or drives on winding roads in New England. While the swamps of the south may not immediately come to mind, Fall in the Okefenokee is a beautiful sight! The needles of the Pond Cyress and Bald Cypress tress turn a rich, rusty brown. They are decorated with green and tan balls of cypress cones, and hung with curtains of tan Spanish Moss.  Don’t forget about the swamp when it comes to fall photography!
