We hear lots of tales about the everglades from the overpopulating pythons to the mysteries of people disappearing here. The everglades is beautiful, remote block of land/water at the end of Florida. It offers a refuge for animals and filters Florida’s water. When you first get to the everglades, you almost don’t know what you are looking at. Fields of high grass run for miles. Underneath the water flows and the animals live. Gators, fish, birds, snakes, you name it and it calls this place home.
I took this picture just before an air boat ride in the everglades. Thanks to Groupon, it was a cheap outing for my husband and I. This was the picture we saw just before climbing on board and exploring the beautify nature has at our back door.
