Though Daniella was born in New York and has lived in a couple of other states, Mississippi has been her home for the past 25 years. After graduating from the University of Southern Mississippi, Daniella began to hone her writing skills through various internships, working for The Royal Obsession and Anatomie clothing. In the years since, she’s had the privilege of having her articles appear in several publications, such as Parents & Kids Magazine and Girl Meets Strong. She’s also had the honor of interviewing actress Sela Ward for The Mississippi Arts and Entertainment Experience.
In the past, we told you about Mississippi’s Petrified Forest, which is home to some pretty old trees – but it’s not the only place in the state you’ll find ancient trees. There’s also Sky Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA). An incredible natural wonder, the WMA has some of the oldest bald cypress trees on earth. But age isn’t the only impressive thing about the trees. Take a look:
Sky Lake WMA is open to the public during daylight hours. For more information, call (662) 335-2422. You can also visit the Sky Lake WMA website.
