THE MONROE COUNTY DOCTRINE
The railroad bridge near Bahia Honda Key is full of history. Built in 1912, it was used for 23 years before it was destroyed by a hurricane, then being reopened as a highway in 1938. After a new bridge was opened in the ‘70s, it was left a scenic overview for tourists, minus two truss spans to accommodate boat traffic. Morgan Mason creates his own view through both time and steel.
The hardy mangrove trees of Key Largo’s John Pennekamp State Park not only create living tunnels above the surface, but also provide nurseries for marine life beneath it. Kristen Dambrauskas paddles through the former and peers into the latter.
