Cooking dinner involves creative thinking on a wilderness canoe trip through the Okefenokee Swamp. This outdoorsman stands on seat cushions taken from his boat to keep his feet dry while boiling potatoes over a campfire.
The Okefenokee Swamp is a deep bog of thick peat moss and fresh “blackwater” that is home to 440 species of birds, mammals, and reptiles, many of which are endangered. The 402,000-acre wetlands was designated a national wildlife refuge in 1937.
