Travel Talk: Four Reasons I Love Swamps

We all have our travel fetishes. For me, right up there with old cemeteries are swamps. I toured Lake Martin Cypress Swamp in Lafayette, Louisiana, in a tin boat during a rainstorm. Maybe not everybody's idea of a good time but for me it was heavenly. Why do I love swamps? 1. Swamps are Mystical [caption id="attachment_3189" align="aligncenter" width="300" caption="Mystical, magical Cypress Lake Martin Swamp (Photo: Doug O'Neill)"] Mystical, magical Lake Martin Cypress swamp (Photo: Doug O'Neill)[/caption] 2.
