Canoeing the Loxahatchee River

The riparian zone of Loxahatchee is great: Slash Pine meets Cypress trees meets Mangroves.

I love the Mangroves with the Cypress buttresses in front. Weird mixture of brackish and fresh swamps.


After our 2 hours of canoeing we headed over to Jupiter Beach for some wave jumping. The beaches here are my favorite in Palm Beach County.

A riparian zone or riparian area is the interface between land and a river or stream.
