A gas-lit card game enlivens the night in a cabin on Floyds Island, once shaken by lumber trains. "Now the only way here is canoe," says Bill Cribbs, a Valdosta State College biology professor, who takes students on overnight trips through the Okefenokee. Cooking chicken and rice (below), he stands on a cushion to keep from sinking into the peat. Visitors may glimpse rare or endan gered species in the refuge, including the wood stork, bald eagle, and red-cockaded woodpecker.
