Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary - Pinelands
(This photo is a 360-degree IPIX interactive image, which allows you to navigate with your mouse: up, down, right and left, in order to see the entire surrounding landscape.)
Navigate around this 360° view from a path through pinelands of the Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary. Note the fire resistant vegetation of slash pine and sabal palm trees and the (predominant) saw palmetto understory.
When the photo is first loaded you are looking down a slightly curved dirt path. Short, sparse grasses border the trail, and to the left and right of the trail, beyond the grass border, you can see slash pine trees and sabal palm trees.
Navigating to the right, intermittent pine trees grow amid a thick saw palmetto understory.
Continuing to the right, pine trees and saw palmetto are seen to the left of the dirt path, and to the right of the dirt path are pine trees and sabal palm trees. As you continue the 360-degree turn to the images starting point, pine trees and a thick understory of saw palmetto and other plants predominates.
Navigating up with your mouse, you can see a blue, partly cloudy sky. Navigating down, you see the South Florida Information Access (SOFIA) web site logo, which is linked to the SOFIA main page (http://sofia.usgs.gov).
