For months now Tom (Hutchings) has been waxing on about “this place.” As we flew over the Atchafalaya Delta and other wetlands he would say, “just wait ’till you see those wetlands in Florida.” Saturday we did – all I can say is my god it was another world! Flying above it was aerial magic. Just insanely magical – like nothing I had seen before. Not a straight-line in sight. Just the elegant, graceful, sensual curves of a planet untouched. Wow! Afterwards what tugs at your heart is that was once what the bayous and backwaters of the Mississippi Delta looked like – until we F#&@ed it up.
