Bald Cypress Trees At The Atchafalaya Swamp Along U.S. Interstate 10
The Atchafalaya Basin or Atchafalaya Swamp is the largest swamp in the United States. It is very eerie driving through the 18.2-mile (nearly 30 kilometers) Atchafalaya Swamp Freeway, especially in the evening. It is the longest elevated bridge in the US. The first time we drove through it was several years ago, at dusk and my heart was catapulted. We all fell silent. I really felt we were passing through a sacred place. My friends have also reported similar experiences.
