Hike Through Mozzie Infested But Beautiful Forest
29 August 2008 | Cumberland Island in far southern Georgia
As soon as it was light we dingied back to the National Park docks and started hiking to the beach, about 1/2 mile from the docks. The hike went through a forest the likes of which I have never seen. Even though I applied deet, the mozzies were overpowering. Big ones. I even applied repellent on the dogs it was so bad. I got bit several times and was walking double time to keep them off of me. The dogs didn't care. They'd been cooped up on the sailboat for days without much of a chance to run free and they relished the experience.
