Congaree Swamp, Stop 7 - Sweetgum Tree, Willow Oak Tree, And Spiders

At this last stop at Congaree Swamp, Rudy and Jim find another Sweetgum tree, which grows very well in this wet, muddy environment. A record size Willow Oak tree, toppled over by the wind, knocked down several other trees in the area, opening up a hole in the canopy, letting in sunlight. Some spiders have been able to make homes for themselves in the roots of this oak tree.
