The first two photos are of the Dismal Swamp Canal, State Park (to the left of the canal) and of the Rest Area (to the right of the canal).
The next 2 photos are of Lake Drummond in Virginia and the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge. Note the blackened area in the foreground of the photo. There was an extensive forest & peat fire here in the swamp that went on for months. It has finally been put out.
