Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.
Today’s 90-Second Escape: Into the swamp.
Thanks to the “Creature From the Black Lagoon,” swamps have gotten something of a bad rap. Or if not a bad rap, certainly not the vibe of a place where one would go to seek peace and solitude. In fact, as the accompanying 90 Second Escape shows, few places offer the solitude that you’ll find in your friendly neighborhood coastal swamp.
Invest 90 seconds and take a quick paddle with us through the gut of Merchants Millpond State Park; we guarantee you won’t find anything to be afraid of.
Take that, gill boy.
