The following pictures are from a trip I made this summer to see "big mama". Big Mama is a 136 foot tall 37 foot circumference Bald Cypress in a swamp along the Nottaway River here in southern virginia. Along with big mama are some really cool tupelo trees. Sadly my camera batteries died after two pics of big mama and only one pic was any good. I will be return to see this tree on Sat because the forest is dry right now. In the one photo you can see 11 people crowded into the stump of an old tupelo tree.
