Dwarf Palmettos Flourishing in the Swamp at Barataria Preserve in Jean LaFitte Historical National Park & Preserve

The Barataria Preserve at Jean LaFitte Historical National Park & Preserve is an amazing place to visit. It is worlds away from the French Quarter and the Garden District in nearby New Orleans. Meandering along the boardwalk of the Bayou Coquille Trail offers encounters with alligators, toads, insects, birds, and primordial views through the swamp. It is amazing and creepily beautiful.

  1. Such a green picture! We went to NOLA in 2013 but did not make it to the Preserve. Maybe next time. . . .

  2. Saribus rotundifolius ( Anáhaw ) is the unofficial national leaf of my country. We have it in abundance and use for thatching and wrapping food.
