DAY 4 of 12: SWAMP THING Backpacking Trip

GTD's 12 Days of Christmas
DAY 4 of 12:
SWAMP THING Backpacking Trip (Jan 2017)

Swamp Thing is a weekend Christ-centered backpacking journey into one of North America's unsung wild places - the Everglades of south Florida. The Big Cypress Swamp is a spectacular, rugged, rare, subtropical landscape experienced by very few adventurous souls each year. It is hauntingly beautiful. And it is enormous, covering 2400 square miles.

GTD's Swamp Thing Backpacking Trip is a 8 mile out-and-back (4 miles each way) hike through the fresh water swamp that flows into the Everglades. We will trek in 4 miles and camp for 1 night on a small pineland island which is surrounded by an endless river of grass, cypress trees, and marsh swamps. During our time we will explore some of the rarest terrain in the world. About 75% of our hiking trail is through swamp water measuring from ankle to knee deep.

Join us at the end of next month (January 2017) for our annual romp in the swamp!
