Everglades Adventures

Want to join us on a camping adventure south of paradise!? Well, since you can't make it, here are pictures for you to enjoy:


Can you see the cougar (panther) in the weeds?

Alligator through bridge planks

Lurking. Would you rather run into
a troll under a bridge or this guy?

Vultures were everywhere, and they like rubber apparently

Sleek swimmer

One of the only bugs we saw, which was a pleasant surprise for us!

Those are some photos! It looks like your family had a great time. Next time you come by the Everglades you should check out the Everglades Day Safari. You get an amazing Everglades tour and a really fun Everglades airboat ride. It's a wonderful time and kids will love it too. http://www.ecosafari.com/
