Our transportation was a shallow-bottom skiff, which could go just about anywhere. The high water allowed us to go into deep into flooded areas

One of the most remarkable sights on the whole trip was seeing the ink-black back waters.  As vegetation decays, tannins leach into the water, making a transparent, acidic water that is darkly stained, resembling ink.

Because of the black water and the right light, interesting reflections of the trees and bushes could be seen.
