Way Down Upon the Suwanee River
By Jeannette Holland Austin
Jeannette Holland Austin
In South Georgia, the Suwanee river rises in the Okefenokee Swamp, emerging at Fargo, Georgia, then runs southwest into Florida, dropping in elevation through limestone layers resulting in a rare Florida whitewater rapid. It then turns west near White Springs, Florida, receiving the waters of the Alapaha and Withlacoochee rivers, which together drain much of south-central Georgia.
