APALACHICOLA RIVER 1 © 2005Florida Panhandle
Discovering the Apalachicola River led me to some of the most beautiful country I had seen since first discovering the Big Cypress National Preserve. It was reassuring to see another place in Florida where the environment remained largely untouched. The river originates north of Atlanta and flows through Georgia as the Chattahoochee River, then becomes the Apalachicola River upon crossing Florida’s panhandle. Concerns about rapid growth, pollution from Georgia, and alteration of the river’s course were, and still are, at the forefront for those living and working there.
