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
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.
