APALACHICOLA RIVER 1 © 2005Florida Panhandle
My journey of exploration along the Apalachicola River and into the marvelous tributaries of the river has shown me some of the most beautiful country since my exploration of Big Cypress National Preserve. It does my soul good to know there is another place in Florida where the environment is still very much in its natural state. The apprehension over rapid growth, pollution from Georgia, and the dredging of the river are concerns to everyone who live and work with the Apalachicola River. It is my hope that by sharing the beauty of the region with you that you will see the need to keep it in its natural biological condition for future generations to enjoy. The river’s source is north of Atlanta. It flows through Georgia as the Chattahoochee River and when it crosses the border into the Panhandle of Florida it becomes the Apalachicola River. The river continues to the Gulf, passing the quaint fishing village of Apalachicola.
