Bradwell Bay Wilderness

The Bradwell Bay Wilderness is part of the United States National Wilderness Preservation System, located in the Panhandle. The 24,602 acre (100 km²) wilderness was established in 1975. "Bay" in this case means "a recess of land, partly surrounded by hills," which, in this particular instance, is mostly swampland and standing water. The Sopchoppy River marks the Bradwell Bay's eastern edge.

Famous quotes containing the words wilderness and/or bay:

    It is surprising on stepping ashore anywhere into this unbroken wilderness to see so often, at least within a few rods of the river, the marks of an axe, made by lumberers who have either camped here or driven logs past in previous springs. You will see perchance where, going on the same errand that you do, they have cut large chips from a tall white pine stump for their fire.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    The seagull’s wings shall dip and pivot him,
    Shedding white rings of tumult, building high
    Over the chained bay waters Liberty—
    Then, with inviolate curve, forsake our eyes
    Hart Crane (1899–1932)
