The Marvin Adams Waterway, Key Largo, Florida

Visitors drive across this bridge on highway U.S. 1 – located about mile marker 103.6. The vertical walls rise about 15 feet high and the local boaters refer to it as “the Cut”. It took a year-and-a-half to complete the half-mile cut in 1961 with a temporary bridge on the bayside. Twelve years later, a four lane highway bridge was built. Interesting story – http://www.keyshistory.org/thecut.html

The Mangroves of the Islands

Off Key Largo are beautiful quiet islands covered with mangroves. These saltwater trees create a massive amount shade and help create an amazing environment to explore. Below is a mangrove tree with new growth.
