Travel, Adventure, and Everything Along the Way!

Gator & Turtle small

While I was in Florida briefly I decided I was much too close to Everglades National Park to not go visit. Unfortunately I didn’t have a lot of time to get to the places I’d really like to, but I did go to Shark Valley Visitor Center where there are a few short trails on boardwalks and paved road through the protected area. The amount of people on bikes and trams didn’t seem to bother the gators at all. They were out in full force. Along with the many gators I also saw a lot of turtles, fish, and birds, including a giant crane that took off while I stood a few feet away. It was a brief visit, but it was a great escape from work and the city.
