I returned to my life in the midwest on sunday. Before I cleared completely out of the swamp ... I stopped off at Corkscrew Nature Preserve outside of Naples, Florida.
It is a pristine slough-- offering a boardwalk that's about 2 miles long. It meanders through the wild -- gentle slow moving RIVER of GRASS.
I saw so much - cypress, Alligator Flags... turkey vultures....
It was fun to have yet another chance to see a swamp.
Hopefully I will get back down here this winter to see the migrating birds.
By the way... Corkscrew was rather tame... as it's the end of the dry season...and not much wildlife or activity.
