Reminds me of the time I was backpacking in the Myakka River State Park on the Gulf coast of Florida. Florida, as you may know, is flat. The swamps where we hiked were nothing like the rolling forests of the northeast or the mountainous hikes we have done in New England. When I say this area was flat, it was flatter than a flitter. Drainage was something you might read about in a geology textbook. These flat trails were waterlogged; there was no drainage, no good reason for the water to be anywhere else.
