Pictured here is the same section and same view of the Kissimmee River floodplain in the early wet season, two months later, on July 16. The floodplain is already inundated with water, and the water that collects here eventually flows into Lake Okeechobee. The edge of the floodplain, about 1.5 miles wide at this point, is marked by a line of dark green Live Oaks.
