MOUND KEY 1 © 1998Estero, FL
This is the tallest Black Mangrove in Florida. It is located on the highest spot in South Florida at 26 ft and it’s not easy to reach! In order to get to it, I climbed over an Indian Mound, lots of small Black Mangroves, Red Mangroves, sunk in the muck several times and struggled not to inhale mosquitoes. It took the majority of the morning to reach the site, but the beauty of the mangrove was worth the struggle.
