Underwater forest: Ancient "fairy world" found off Alabama coast
Some 50,000 years ago, Earth was experiencing an ice age. Sea levels had dropped precipitously, and the Alabama coastline stretched over 10 miles farther out to sea than it does today.
Thick cypress forests covered a swampy valley in places that are now covered in over 60 feet of seawater.
It's difficult to imagine, but there's one place where the remnants of these ancient forests still exist like tangible ghosts, where deep below the surface, cypress trunks peek out of the sediment and fish congregate like fairies.
