We wanted to give Michelle a taste of the adventure she has to look forward to later this week, so spent last Saturday afternoon at the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Preserve. It was a beautiful day, don’t you think so?
In addition to the hundreds of birds and hatching crickets, we even saw an alligator sunning itself near a turtle.
I wanted to get some pictures of them hiking, because I won’t be along for the next one. (Someone needs to do the dropping off and picking up so they don’t have to retrace their steps, and 27 miles worth would be a lot of steps to retrace!) I can assure you, though, that the terrain will be pretty much the same – along a series of canal dikes leading from the Seminole Indian Reservation to Lake Okeechobee.
