The Florida Everglades is an ecosystem in peril. In certain places, however, one can see vistas as old as time where the slowly flowing sheet of water seems endless, host to a literal sea of sawgrass. This image is taken from the western levee of Miami-Dade county, which divides the natural Everglades from the hungry sprawl of humanity.
Location: the north-eastern corner of Everglades National Park just west of Krome avenue and south of Tamiami Trail.
