The Mystery of Carolina Bays

Record #:
Mystery lies in the origin for Carolina Bays, technically lakes and named for a tree that thrives in their peat-filled soil. Theories attribute sinkholes, spawning fish, and meteors to the creation of lakes such as Horseshoe, Jones, Antioch Church Bay, and Singletary. Photos showcasing features such tannin-rich lakes offering cool water on hot days and limestone-generated biodiversity help explain their appeal to generations of Native Americans, locals, and tourists.
