PADDLING THE
ATCHAFALAYA
McGee's Louisiana Swamp & Airboat Tours
,
Every summer, Scouts from across
the country descend on the
Atchafalaya Swamp of Louisiana.
,
Their mission... to paddle 61.6
miles and conquer America’s
largest swamp!
,
 
Their first day in the #atchafalaya
involves a grueling 19.3 mile
paddle.
 
,
Including sights of beautiful moss
draped cypress trees and local
houseboats.
,
When they arrive, many
participants think of swamps as
dangerous and disgusting places.
,
It’s not until they see it firsthand,
that they truly understand it’s
beauty and significance.
,
Crews of #scouts twist and turn
through the flooded forests.
,
Morning light is both magical and
mysterious, as the sunlight
illuminated the Spanish moss.
,
By the end of a challenging trip, a
newfound appreciation has been
formed for the swamp.
