Spanish Moss dancing in the winter winds of Louisiana swampland.

Louisiana swamplands during harvest season are dotted with Cypress trees draped in long Spanish Moss and golden leaves. An escape to lake Verret by way of the historic Native American Attakapas Landing brings an overwhelming sense of peace and the quiet in the natural beauty of these mysterious swamplands.
