Okefenokee Swamp | Blackwater, National Geographic Magazine: Morning Rituals

Reflected in the mirror while shaving, elderly bachelor William McKinley Crews will choose which hat he’ll wear for the day from the collection that hangs on his wall. He lived his entire life on his 160-acre farm in Moccasin Swamp located on the southwestern side of the Okefenokee Swamp in rural Georgia. With no running water, electricity or telephone, he lived with 14 cats and four heifers.
