Wide Open Spaces

November 6, 2011

In order to travel from the east coast of Florida to the west coast ( and back, again) you need to drive through the Florida Everglades. No matter how often I make the trip ( to visit my mom) and no matter which way we choose to go, I am always amazed at the vastness of the Everglades…the wide open spaces between the two coast lines. Some of it is farm land, some the marshes and some the swamp…

I took some pictures with my phone’s camera this weekend and they really don’t do it justice…but I thought I’d share and next time I will remember my camera and maybe make a pit stop or two to really capture the beauty of it all.

Alligator Alley ( I-75), in the middle of the Florida Everglades!

It goes on like this forever and ever. All you see is space and sometimes an alligator or two!!! 🙂 I love it and never tire of it. I truly have come to love and appreciate all that Florida’s environment has to offer. I think, it’s amazing…

Do you enjoy the scenery and nature’s bounty where you live?

      Hilary, yes, we are lucky. I hope, that I have a chance one of these days to come visit and see everything again…it’s been so long.
