Salt Marsh, Steinhatchee, Florida

We went up to Steinhatchee, Florida to go scalloping for a few days.  While we were there, I got a chance to take the 'road to nowhere' and see the salt marshes.  The dogs and I headed down a two lane road to nowhere...and when we got to the end, well, we had to turn around as it was surrounded by salt marsh area that was mostly dried.  Later I learned that it rarely has water at the end of this road.  I almost felt like Forrest Gump - remember when he ran across the country, when he got to the edge he turned around and kept going?

I stopped at a little clearing to take a few photographs as well as a bridge that crosses over the water and flows on out to the gulf capturing some wonderful photographs.

There were lots of crabs along this lonely road - blue crabs, good eating so I hear but I didn't have anything to catch the crabs with.

This photograph was taken at the Rocky Creek Boat Ramp.  This particular boat ramp is used by some of the smaller boats as well as air boats - boats that do not need a lot of depth in the water.  The water flows out to the gulf near Rocky Creek where we went scalloping.
