Ballooning over

Ballooning over the Inlet

Roger Bansemer painted a series of Florida's tropical wilderness based on a trip to the Withlacoochee river on Florida's West Coast USA.

Withlacoochee probably stems from a Muskhogean dialect. It is compounded of Creek we (water), thlako (big) and chee (little) or little big water.
