Our photographer, deep in the heart of the Florida Everglades

by , December 28, 2015 in Archive

Dale, one of Tourism Media’s photographers recently visited the Florida Everglades and sent home these images. We were so inspired, we did a bit of research and here’s what we found out from the National Parks Website:

The Everglades are an amazing natural environment with wet sawgrass prairies, dry tropical hardwood hammocks and pinelands, mangrove swamps and Florida Bay and Gulf Coast estuaries provide habitat for a wildlife spectacle like no other.

The one and only Everglades has many adventures to offer. Take a short walk on the Anhinga Trail to spot abundant wildlife — turtles, herons and alligators! Climb atop Shark Valley’s 65-foot observation tower for a bird’s eye view of the glades. Glide over Florida Bay by tour boat or kayak for a chance to glimpse a crocodile, manatee, or dolphin. Watch as the sun sets over Flamingo, the southernmost point in mainland Florida. Explore the pinelands by bike, paddle amongst the mangroves on Nine-Mile Pond, or tour the historic Nike Hercules missile base. Join a ranger on a slough slog deep into the heart of a cypress dome. Find solitude on your own on a week-long canoe trip, camping along the 99-mile Wilderness Waterway. a safe and enjoyable visit to the Everglades.
