The Delmarva Peninsula is lucky. We straddle the northern most range of the bald cypress tree. This means we have beautiful cypress swamps to paddle, and in our case a cypress swamp just twenty minutes away in Delaware’s Trap Pond State Park. We began our kayaking season this year on April 18th, in that very same park. This was a full two weeks earlier than 2018 when a very cold April kept us off the water until May 1st.
We have written about Trap Pond State Park several times in the past so this is not detailed post this time around but rather a photo album of our trip. The early foliage and still swamp waters make for some lovely reflections. Enjoy!
