    in the wilds of FL

    There's a drought and I only saw a couple alligators, but there were plenty of these.

    Bruce,
    Thanks for sharing. When were you there? (before or after the recent tropical storm went through?)
    All the best,

    I arrived the day after the tropical storm (6/3). It dropped ~2" of rain in the Tampa area, but someone I met on a trail in Sebring said only a little fell over there. They need much more.

    Awsome pics. I like that suspended bridge. I would try that even though I'm not too keen on heights.

    Its really a shame its so dry there. Its pretty dry here too.

    Wow! Thanks for sharing, Bruce. How large is Myakka River State Park? Is it a place to spend a day or two exploring or just a couple hours? That bridge has me intrigued. It's something my daughter and I would enjoy checking out.

    Very nice. Looks like a nice place to visit. I guess the sea turtle tracks were fresh? Do they come out every night or only the few times the nest each year? That would be quite a site to see with multiple sea turtles crawling along the beach back to home.
